MVP is a preferred tackling equipment partner of USA Football. MVP began as a collaboration between Dartmouth Head Coach Buddy Teevens and a group of engineers and athletes from Dartmouth’s Thayer School of Engineering. Together, they developed and patented the world’s first self-righting robotic tackling dummy to help reduce unnecessary player-on-player contact and the overall incidence of injuries suffered during football practices. MVP’s robotic tackling dummies were specifically engineered to replicate the performance and size of a skilled player, enabling teams to get game-like reps in a safer, more effective way. At Dartmouth, concussions were reduced by 58% in the first two seasons of implementing the MVP|DRIVES into practice. In the first 2 years of the robotic tackling dummies being available, MVP completely sold out of their MVP|DRIVES to half of the NFL teams, over 40 colleges, and more than 70 high schools. MVP is proud to be releasing a new lower-priced model, SPRINT, for the 2019 season. SPRINT has been designed to fit the performance needs and budgets of high school and youth programs.
