Tackle Types

The five stages of Tackle Ready and their Key Performance Indicators are the generic principles that should be used by the coach and player to coach, perform and analyse each tackle. The five stages are appropriate for all levels of players, at every age and stage (depending on Age Grade Law Variations in use within your Union). The five stages should be used as a default position for coaching and performing each type of tackle.

The following pages list different types of tackle, levels of tackle, and entry detail. This list is not exhaustive but commonly occur within the game (note. Tackles may be known by alternative names in differing territories).

Each type of tackle does have additional technical considerations which must be considered when coaching and performing.
