The Origin of Football

Footbal Training is becoming an increasingly important aspect of the game of American football. There are many factors that make FOOTBAL training a necessity for any player, young or old. Most of these factors have to do with safety and the ability to move quickly. Both of these qualities can be seen in football and in particular in the more modern game of football played in the UK. So, what are the different facets of FOOTBAL and why is it becoming such an important part of the game?

FOOTBAL

Football: a game where teams utilize a spherical object for regulation football, usually with a smaller diameter than the football itself. The object is generally a fairly large disc shaped object that players throw, kick, or run with. In addition, players utilize various other motions to try to get the ball into a specific area on the field. The object cannot actually touch the ground (although players are allowed to push, pull, and lift the object to throw it into the air) and players may “touch” the object with hands, arms, or legs only if they use their own body weight against the thrust of the throw. In essence, FOOTBAL is about collision and control rather than ball control and flight.

V ie: the word football is a reference to volleyball which is an even simpler version of FOOTBAL. Volleyball is a version of soccer that has developed a lot of its own unique rules. Although most spectators will refer to volleyball and basketball by different names, both of those games utilize many of the same aspects of FOOTBAL. The game is played with two teams at each end of a long court. Each team receives four practice throws, a volley kick, and then takes their turn at shooting or attempting to kick the ball through the goal frame.

F o: the game of football in America is simply called football or American football. In England, however, it is known as Association Football. The game was first played between groups of people at a communal assembly called a pub or “pub” where members of the group would regularly meet for games of football. As time passed by, the game spread throughout England and America and was eventually played by teams at public schools, beginning in the late 19th century. In England, apart from football being a popular game at public school, it was also used to teach discipline, physical education, and to show the different cultures of Britain and America.

F o: although the English language uses the word football to refer to the sport itself, it actually refers to two completely different sports: Association football and Futbol. Association football refers to a form of contact sports played between two teams consisting of two to three players. For example, soccer and cricket. On the other hand, Futbol is an international competition, organized by the United Soccer Federation, which has been used as a stepping stone to World Cup qualification.

In recent times, football has gained international status, with countries like Brazil, Japan, South Africa, and Germany all having their own professional football leagues. However, the most recognized and widely played sport is American football, which was played in America for roughly a century prior to World War II. Because of this short history, many Americans fail to realize that they are indeed familiar with the sport of football – even if they rarely ever attend a football match. Thus, it can be safely said that American football, or Association football, is by far the most popular sport in the United States.
