Truck Tire Inner Tubes For Floating – At first glance, Tube Tackle doesn’t look like much. It’s like an inner tube overgrown by most young people floating on the Buffalo River, or small truck tires that fitness enthusiasts will turn upside down as part of their CrossFit regimen.
In fact, Tube Tackle is a device designed to teach players a better body mechanism when doing tackle training in football. “Their goal is to take a head out of coping,” head of Mountain Home High School soccer coach Bryan Mattox.
Truck Tire Inner Tubes For Floating
Mountain Home School District received a pair of Tackle Tubes, donated by the Baxter Regional Medical Center public relations fund, to help “overcome” head and neck injuries that can occur during soccer practice.
“They are good for beginners,” Mattox said. “They’re a great way for them to learn the right techniques.”
Freddy Penka’s seventh-grade Pinkston Middle School soccer coach has heard the tube and recommended them to Mattox. Fortunately, Freddy Tammy Penka’s wife served as a quality director at Baxter Regional Medical Center and contacted her employer to get financial assistance.
“We run it by (executive director of the Baxter Regional Hospital and vice president / BRMC business development) Barney Larry and he ordered them,” said Marketing Director Tobias Pugsley.
The tube was presented to Mattox on Friday by Pugsley and Director of Market Analysis and Development Mike Beam. Each tube costs around $ 300 and has been ordered back for some time.
The Penka coach will train his first-class players to use tubes.
“I have seventh grade students, and we all value the safety of our students,” Mattox said. “We cannot do many things like this with our budget, so we are very grateful for the help from the community.”
Beam, who played his role in football in his day, said that using Tube Tackle is a more natural way to teach mechanical handling techniques.
Old-school tackling dummies are mounted on a metal frame, side by side, like a wooden player on a snowball table. A more modern version looks like a big bag used in boxing, but both leave something to be desired.
“The coach will hold the doll, the player runs there and then the coach releases it,” Beam said. “That’s not how the game is played.”
To be used for training, the tube is mounted on the end like a tire. The most basic exercise is when the coach rolls the tube and the player chases it. Players should focus on keeping their back straight, head to the side and put their feet in a strong position.
A player can handle a tube from any angle and several tubes can be used for training with many players.
Each tube is made of high density foam with PVC that is durable, so it does not deflate or lose shape.
Tube tackle is also a useful tool for those who play rugby.
According to Maddox, state regulations for public school football allow students to practice every day as a way to reduce neck and head injuries.
Beam said that both Salem state schools and Yellville-Summit would each receive a pair of tubes as well.
“Very good, Coach Penka made a request and that other schools also benefited from that,” Beam said.
