TackleBar™ Football is a safer approach that preserves the tradition and fundamentals of the game.

"TackleBar™ Football seems to be a very good alternative to teach the fundamentals of football, while minimizing/eliminating injuries to players. I see this form of the game a better fit for young players; I do not see the need of starting tackle at such a young age.”

TackleBar is for today’s game of football.

TackleBar Football consists of a harness worn around the torso with two foam bars attached at the back. A ball carrier is downed by tearing off one of the foam TackleBars. The TackleBar Football system has been strategically designed to teach proper defensive fundamentals. The bar location requires defense to play with their head up and eyes on the ball carrier at all times.

    Youth football enrollment has been on an alarming decline over the past 5 years. We believe a new approach to the game, leveraging new equipment, is required to respond to these circumstances.

    TackleBar™ Football can be played with pads but no tackling. A traditional line of scrimmage, blocking, and safe contact is still embedded in the game. Padded TackleBar™ Football enables development of traditional football skills, positions, formations, and plays.

Wrap and Rip Technique

Wrap and Rip is the technique for engaging and downing a ball carrier by removing a bar. This technique has been developed in harmony with the latest safety recommendations for shoulder tackling, which calls for the tackler to keep his/her head to the side, away from the impact of the tackle.
