The Collision King Junior – Technical Information
The Collision King Junior has been specifically engineered in an arrowhead design so that if the player does not make contact with the “contact pad” in the correct technical position, the impact will be lessened through the machine. Encouraging players to make contact from the hindmost foot and hit square on is a key coaching point. If the player makes contact with the “contact pad” from the side, the machine will slide away from the player resulting in a failure to get direct impact on the “contact pad”.
The Collision King Junior “contact pad” sits at a specific angle on the front of the machine. It is designed to force the player up and over their initial hit. The player must work on staying in the contact point and not “slipping up”, requiring strong core and technique, and also using head movement and grips to stay strong through the collision.
The player must work on leg drive and leg speed within the collision. The “contact pad” sits at a specific angle to allow for clear knee lift and leg drive – the player can vary their collision to an impact through the machine or an impact resulting in a strong unmovable finishing position.
Once the player has made initial contact they can make a choice on different types of hand placement around The Collision King Junior “grip bar” – under grip, over grip, lift and twist, straight punch grip or mix and match.
All pads on the “grip bar” are designed to rotate so the player must work on strong hand placement while keeping the correct body position throughout the exercise.
The Collision King Junior “grip bar” can be positioned so that it sits at different angles from the “contact pad” – this then allows individual players to work on different lengths of grip and enables the “grip bar” to be moved back, allowing a double hit (two player contact) to take place.
The Collision King Junior weighs 60kg. Olympic weight plates can be added to increase the weight at the “contact pad” end of the machine which helps replicate the average weight of the opposition (the plates fit onto a specific weight plate fitting).
The base plate on The Collision King Junior is contoured so that it causes resistance against the grass thus controlling the pace of the machine along with the added weight. This base plate can also be designed in a smooth finish so that the machine can be used on synthetic pitches (3G and Astro).
