Football is not only a contact sport, but one of preservation. You want your
team to be healthy and fresh heading into the important late season games, and
teams are resorting to new methods to ensure everyone's safety throughout the
One innovation that's sweeping practice fields everywhere is the tackling
ring. Also called a tackle ring or pursue and tackle wheel depending on the
brand, tackling rings are a great way to work on your technique without risking
another player's health. The wheels are usually simply constructed out of foam
and vinyl, with some featuring straps to secure a ball and work on fumble
drills. Aside from the limited injury risk, tackle wheels also promote good
tackling techniques, forcing players to wrap up around the wheel to simulate
wrapping up an opposing ball carrier.
There are several options for tackling rings based on your team needs. Youth
teams will want to look at smaller the Fisher 28" Pursue and Tackle Wheel that
allows player to work on techniques against opponents their own size. Middle
school and high school teams can look at bigger wheels in the 40-inch or 48-inch
range to more accurately work on their tackling.
Exclusive to our site, the Sports Unlimited Tackling Ring comes in three
sizes, 36, 40 and 48 inches. Made from higher quality foam than other rings, our
