Tips on Tug of War

Like all games and sports, Tug of War has tactics and techniques that help your team win.  Most important is to act as a TEAM!  When you pull, all pull together.  Your team may need a skipper who orchestrates the team's attack.

Wrapping the rope around the arm can result in a broken bone and loss of blood flow. Wrapping the rope around the wrong part of the body can cause internal injury, and wrapping it around the neck is just ... (yes, people are that stupid). Spikes and studs in the footware can cause injury when a pull collapses. They can also cause strains and breaks if the feet get stuck in the ground. 

Tug of war is not a pulling event but a pushing event: you push with your legs and dragging the rope (and opposition) with you. Keep your arms and body straight so that the full power of your legs are transferred the rope.

The above advice is from the website.  Get all their advice HERE

Remember, it's PUSH not PULL!
