Football 101 was created to help women understand the game of football, in their own way, and in our fun way of teaching America’s favorite game!

Our mission is to conduct seminars to professional women on learning the game of football in an interactive networking environment. The subject areas offer the participants an interactive learning environment including both the knowledge and the know-how to use it. This is a focused educational experience that short-cuts the normal learning curve by providing the fundamental knowledge required, in a practical presentation and a relaxed setting. These seminars provide a low intensity, enjoyable environment to learn practical information that can be translated into everyday life.
