How To Watch Football

Here is a quick starting point for those who would like to get more involved with the game of football, whether that be through coaching, playing, or simply watching the game.

Unlike basketball or baseball, football is traditionally played on the weekends. In the fall and winter months, college football is played on Saturdays and the NFL on Sundays. Each weekend there are many games on national television. Some fans choose to watch at home, while others use bars or other public gatherings to get the most football at once from a variety of screens. Be sure to check out live games for the best experiences, though-there are youth, high school, college, and pro teams all over America and even abroad!

How To Play Football

Playing football can be tough without starting at a young age. Most football players have been playing since high school or earlier. There are adult and kids leagues everywhere in America, though. Check out local organizations for openings, because playing a casual game is extremely difficult-finding all the equipment and players necessary for a game is tough without an organization.

How To Coach Football

Coaching football starts with motivation. The players need to be excited to play the game. Reinforcing positivity and focus are key, especially when coaching a youth team. Understanding the game is obviously key, but a good coach makes their strategies easy to understand for their players. Experience is also key; coaches at high levels have either worked their way up through the high school and college ranks or are former players.football-head-coach

How To Analyze Football

Analyzing football all starts with recognizing the different positions and their roles. Like coaching, being a good analyst is dependent on how much experience an analyst has with the game. Learning terms and applying what you learn as you watch games are big steps to becoming more in-tune with the game. Additionally, reading about games and strategies will educate you about the tendencies of different players, positions, and strategies. Using our football tutorial is a great way to start learning about the game!

How To Be a Football Fan

One of the best aspects of watching, playing, or analyzing football is choosing a team to root for. Watching a team evolve and (hopefully) win important games can be extremely exciting. Fans choose their teams based on geographic location, traditional family ties, favorite players/coaches, or intriguing strategy or storylines. Fans can appreciate their teams from afar or live at games. One important football tradition is tailgating, which involves driving to games early and partying in the stadium parking lot prior to kickoff.
