American Football

football americano


American football is a team sport played with two teams of 11 players each on a rectangular field. The object of the game is to score points by advancing the ball through a combination of runs and passes.
The attacking team has four attempts (downs) to advance at least 10 yards. If they succeed, they get a new set of downs. American football is known for physical contact and tackles, with players trying to stop the opponent's advance by blocking or tackling them.


The game is divided into four quarters with a break at half-time. The Super Bowl is the biggest event in American football, attracting millions of spectators worldwide.


The class is suitable for all levels. The instructor will propose viable alternatives for any level.


Training sessions are held every Monday and Friday from 20:00 to 22:00.
