Ivy League coaches eliminate tackling at football practices
Ivy League football coaches have unanimously approved a measure to end full-contact hitting in practices, according to The New York Times.
The league has been one of the most cautious in the nation, already limiting the amount of hitting in practice.
According to the Times, the motion was inspired by Dartmouth, who started using “mobile virtual players” in 2010 to replace players in tackling drills.
The official move to limit contact further is expected to be approved by the league’s athletic directors, policy committee and school presidents.
