New Amateur Tackle Rules

Football Canada Makes Changes To Rulebook

The Football Canada Tackle Rules Committee has adapted a number of changes, clarifications and corrections approved to the Canadian Amateur Tackle Football Rule Book. The changes are for immediate distribution and implementation.

The changes include:

  • Extending the Tandem Buck Rule (pushing, pulling or charging into the ball carrier to assist his/her forward progress) to include the ball carrier on any play (e.g. turnover, punt return)
  • Amending the Horse Collar Rule (pulling the ball carrier down by grasping the inside of the shoulder pads/collar) to include the outside of the jersey above the numbers
  • New numbering system for eligible & ineligible receivers which was announced last year is now to be fully implemented

Full details including rationale for the changes can be found below:
