Often time’s players injuries occur during challenges in a game which are a result of not knowing how to properly tackle or shield a ball. People think that only big players can hold off opponents but it is up to each individual player to understand what works best for them. A smaller player is more agile and should therefore use moves and movement to protect the ball.

What is Taught in this Class:
In the class we will give each player the tools to effectively protect the ball and steal a ball. We will also work on using the body in different angles to give a player better support.
Other tackles such as shoulder push, slide tackle and body positioning will be taught.
Who should do this class:
Defending is not only something that the defenders need to do in the field; every player in the field needs to be able to win a ball from an opponent. We will teach the players the technique of how to defend in a correct way and prevent fouls and injuries. Age: 10 to 14 or 3 or more years of travel/Classes experience.
