DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Moose Kicking Tee

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Kicking Tee

INSPIRATION:
While teaching his son to penalty kick a rugby ball, our client realised that if the drop punt technique was used for penalty kicks in Rugby Union and Rugby League kicking accuracy and consistency would improve. The drop punt uses the best impact point for accuracy; above the toes on the foot centreline requiring the foot to pass through underneath the ball unimpeded. This in line action is more repeatable than current cone kicking tees that require kicking with the inside of the foot.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Moose is a completely new way to support ovoid balls for training and game use. The core innovation provides space for the foot to kick straight through under the ball, enabling the accurate drop punt technique to be used. The design innovation is the antler 4 point ball support that allows critical ball contact and flight. There are no other products with this unique feature.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Moose supports balls from junior to full size with different ball shapes for Rugby Union, Rugby League and AFL, Australian Rules Football League. The ball can be angled forwards or backwards for different kick distances. Designed to be visible on the field and not easily lost after training sessions. The snap fit assembly is easy and keyed for correct antler orientation. The tee includes a moulded in direction indicator to show novice and young users the correct kick orientation.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started design development in Sydney, Australia, in February 2013 and finished in November 2013 when 6,000 Tees were manufactured in Dongguan, Guangdong, China.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The ball needs to be supported almost tangentially to the ball surface resulting in high outwards forces countered with tough and strong polypropylene antlers. The snap-fit antlers enable easy carrying in kit bags. Narrow and Broad bridges give width options for the range of ball shapes and sizes. For safety and a quality feel, the antlers are two shot over moulded in soft TPE. This provides an action look with white swoops over the red antler sides and soft zones where needed for safety.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dimensions In use 180H x 180W x 130D Packaging 45 x 245 x 245 Materials Polypropylene, TPE Shore 40A The tee was designed to minimise environmental impact by providing a long service life avoiding early replacement and making the most of the material, production techniques employed and length of product lifecycle. Product disassembly allows for ease of transport and minimal space for shipping before purchase, contributing to reduce the carbon footprint.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Concept tests were done with a number of wire test rigs to resolve the optimal 4 support points. Prototypes were field tested extensively with players and coaches and feedback assessed and incorporated where appropriate. Repeated prototype experimentation fine tuned the form and the minimum material required.

CHALLENGE:
Support the range of ball sizes at 4 critical points with space beneath while allowing ball angle to be varied. Rear antlers higher and wider to contact on a broader part of the ball, allowing the widest foot part to pass unimpeded. Front antlers closer and lower to determine the ball height and deliver a clean release after impact. Enable easy shape change for transport in kit bags. Safety with soft material and shape. Tee to come apart when fallen on without resulting injury.
