World Rugby’s Tackle Ready Program
The aim of the programme is to build on the safe tackling introduction provided in Rugby Ready to increase technical understanding and mastery for both player and coach. This programme will allow coaches to analyse, coach, and assess the individual tackling skills of their players in detail and to foster the development of a “tackle culture” within their rugby environment.
Tackle Ready aims to introduce consistent terminology across the game, and to provide a deeper understanding of what makes a safe and effective tackle. It provides coaches and players with the specific tackle stages and detailed KPIs, which will develop the individual tackler and ball-carrier.
Tackle Ready identifies skill-specific movement patterns relating to the core components of the tackle and takes them from a simple static form through to dynamic combined movements.
Tackle Ready is relevant for all ages and stages of players and should be coached as part of a holistic programme involving support staff (if available e.g. Strength & Conditioning, Medical, Psychology) to create a “tackle culture” within the rugby organisation.
This program is online and can be joined and completed at any time.
