Make a slide tackle (U11 activity)

SLIDE TACKLE

“Get in range before you slide” • “Slide on your hip” • “Hook the ball with your foot” • “Get back on your feet quickly”

Set players up in pairs with a ball between them and two cones that are 10 yards apart. One player passes to the other then tries a tackle to win the ball back.

The tackler must get on his feet quickly whether the tackle is successful or not.
