”We have created a dangerous sport”

Hockeysverige requires addressing the alarming figures

Bizarre 341 huvudtacklingar in elithockeyn last five years.

Now Hockeysverige had enough.

"together We have increased the ”entertainment value”, and made the sport more politically correct, but unfortunately created a dangerous sport," says Skellefteå's coach Bert Robertsson.

Rounds rolls on in the Swedish second league allsvenskan and SHL.

Exciting games with winners and losers.

But also with huvudtacklingar, which do not decrease in number, increase rather.

Sportbladet has reviewed the number of huvudtacklingar recent years and the results is scary.

many managers and players paid attention during the autumn.

" It is time now that we take it up here to the surface properly what it comes to tackles\\u002Fmottagning of the tackles and the responsibility we leaders have, say, does not play sports manager Michael Sundlöv.

”What is tacklingens aim”

He has seen his Modo to be very badly damaged by knocks to the head during the fall.

Of the ten judgments from the disciplinary Board in the autumn of the current Teams have the Modo players were the victims in five of these.

– It is bad and it's not getting better. The time that it ends. Today ice hockey has become the individual sports, not team. I should not generalize but the majority of all young people go on a skills camp and get to learn all the fine technical moves with the hammer and get a nice ice skating. When we train young people in to share a tackle or receive a tackle and what is really tacklingens purpose, asking themselves does not play sports director.

Sundlöv want to have a call to action – immediately.

And is echoed by many managers and players out there.

Bert Robertsson, the coach of Skellefteå, is another who spontaneously contacted Sportbladet and had enough.

Together we have increased the ”entertainment value” and made the sport more politically correct, but unfortunately created a more dangerous sport.

Michael Sundlöv and Bert Robertsson would like to see some changes.

✓ Four hour tacklingsutbildning to a player who is suspended for illegal tackles.

✓ Better respect and attitude on the ice.

✓ Better choice of words from the coach when the matches heat up.

✓ Allow tackles further down in the ages.

" We must bring down the speed too. It has, with new rules and a new approach in the training of players, increased significantly, which means shorter reaction times, more uncontrolled incidents, with less ”spelintelligenta” player, " adds Bert Robertsson.
