Dan Swanstrom - Teaching Situational Awareness In All Phases





Situational Awareness - Increas Your Team's Football IQ


What is situational awareness in Football? 


Situations come in various types of forms, from entering the red zone and your short on yardage to a first down inside your own three yard line. You could have your offense come out in a bad field position, you could face a screen trick play and you need to know how to adjust, or it's a 4th down and you want to impose your will on the opposing team. 


Perhaps it's overtime and you need to be understanding of the rules. Maybe the two minute offense where you need a field goal or touchdown but you have no timeouts? Or you're pulling out the hail mary offense out of desperation and it's the last play of the game?


Unique scenarios in football are inevitable. There are different football scenarios that occur during the game. When those situations happen, the team must adapt its play and react appropriately.


There are two approaches to this.  You can wait until they happen and teach based on that...OR you can start teaching those and make them a part of your team's collective Football IQ.


Create situational awareness for your team and be ready when the time presents itself.
