Since 1997, Train ‘Em Up Academy has been at the forefront of training youth football players, coaches, and organizations to tackle properly to eliminate the use of the helmet during tackling.
Our 12-step tackle progression training system represents almost 2 decades of research and development into eliminating the major cause of concussions and catastrophic head and spine injuries.
To date, we are the only evidence-based tackle training system proven to eliminate the use of the crown of the helmet during tackling while dramatically reducing the forces to the head and spine…
Percent of concussions
Our technique removes 100% of crown-first impact and helmet exposure to contact while the defender is in the act of making a tackle.
Lab testing shows a reduction in G forces to the head and spine by as much as 43%.
Dear Coach Hosea. I just wanted to thank you personally. My son Eric used to be tentative and a little scared when it came to tackling. As a result, he didn't get a lot of opportunities to play. After attending your camp and learning proper techniques for keeping the head out of the tackle, his confidence is up. He's now one of the best tacklers on the team and not a single concussion or head blow... best money I ever spent on football...
Thank you Coach Bobby...As a mother of 2 football players (1 Pop Warner - 1 high school), I feel a lot better about my sons playing football after watching you teach my boys the right way to tackle and seeing the difference in how they tackle... You're the real deal!!
Train ‘Em Up Academy organizes tackle training safety clinics year-round for players and coaches. We help you recognize the elements that lead to dangerous practices, then give you the tools to replace problematic techniques with safe, effective techniques.
We also organize traveling tackle safety clinics around the country for teams, schools and associations that want to ensure safe, injury-reducing protocols are implemented throughout the entire organization.
