THE ATAVUS TACKLE SYSTEM PROCESS:

01
The Atavus Tackle System™ is based on a shoulder-led technique to improve the safety of athletes, improve their effectiveness and confidence, and give teams a competitive edge.

The first step of our process is breaking down the concept of tackling into both pre-contact and contact phases. There are a variety of skills for athletes to learn in each of these steps that are essential in order to maximize power and control to deliver momentum safely into a successful tackle. Learn how an athlete should evaluate a situation and their potential part in the tackle, decides how to take the best path into contact, and positions their body correctly to maximize momentum and power into contact.
