For high school football coaches tasked with teaching tackling technique in limited live practice periods, the Tackle Tube offers the perfect solution.

With concussion research at the forefront of the sport of football, coaches are limited to the number of full-pad practices they can hold each week. As a result, it has become more difficult to teach tackling technique, since there are fewer opportunities to run live drills.
