NFL Way to Play Instructional Videos

Pop Warner has teamed up with the NFL and the Way to Play initiative to provide a series of weekly instructional videos to help our young athletes learn proper playing technique across all levels of football.

The educational initiative is designed to demonstrate proper technique, explain fundamental concepts and share best practices in an effort to better protect players from unnecessary risk.

“NFL Way to Play is about recognizing good play each week: Knees bent. Pads down. Head up,” said Troy Vincent, NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations. “NFL players and coaches are the best in the world at demonstrating excellent technique.”

Every Thursday, we'll feature a new Way to Play Instructional Video to allow you to keep active while social distancing at home without much equipment - all you need is a little space and some determination!

Langhorne, PA, November 30, 2020 - As youth coaches and players look to find ways to continue their development throughout the year and during the pandemic, Pop Warner, the nation’s oldest youth football organization, is partnering with the NFL to promote proper playing fundamentals. Through the NFL Way to Play initiative, the NFL aims to protect players from unnecessary risk and foster culture change across all levels of football.

Pop Warner and the NFL will kick off their partnership with a live virtual clinic hosted by NFL Legend LeCharles Bentley on Thursday, December 3 at 7pm ET. Bentley will deliver a dynamic presentation and engage in discussions with Pop Warner coaches and administrators from across the country as he demonstrates proper technique and drills that players can use to practice at the field or at home.

“Learning extends beyond practices and games,” said Sam Mutz, Pop Warner Football Commissioner. “We believe in providing our coaches with the type of teaching tools they can use to help our players improve their skills, maximize their ability and take a safer approach to playing the game. We’re excited about the opportunity for them to collaborate with a Pro Bowler and All American like LeCharles Bentley.”

Several NFL head coaches, active players and NFL Legends have worked together to develop the Way to Play curriculum, emphasizing stance, posture and technique as keys to protecting players while providing a winning edge. They’ve created a library of educational videos and other content for coaches and players to utilize as a resource when practicing proper playing technique. Additional content highlights position-specific drills, exercise by muscle group and film breakdown is available on the NFL’s Play Football YouTube channel and the Playfootball.com website.

“As the youth football community continues to navigate these unprecedented times, it is especially important to provide resources and educational tools to ensure players and coaches remain football-ready,” said NFL Legend LeCharles Bentley. “Through the Way to Play curriculum, we’re excited to partner with Pop Warner to continue to educate those involved at the youngest levels of the game.”
