We say this all the time, right? ‘You can be anything you want to be.’ Lately, we say it as we’re watching the football game from our living room. Our kids scream ‘Defense! Defense! Defense!’ and practice ‘Down, Set, Hut’ over and over.
For our family, football has always been a way to come together, celebrate, and create traditions. Football brings our family together whether it’s watching or playing. Lucky for us, there are so many ways to play and align with so many of our family values, specifcally: tradition, and inclusivity.
Our football tradition
Sundays in our household are reserved for football. We invite our family in, share a meal together, and sit snug on our couch while our favorite team leaves it all on the field. The National Football Foundation (NFF) celebrates the sport and is steeped in tradition (beginning 75 years ago).
Football is for everyone
Football isn’t just for boys. With so many ways to play, our daughters can get in on the action. With flag, co-ed, and tackle teams available, there’s room for everyone!
Pittsburgh Moms is proud to partner with the National Football Foundation (NFF) and Future for Football to bring football to more local families. If your family is interested in joining the football community, check out the Future for Football League Finder to find a league local to you.
