Transcript of Swimming vs football

Swimming Competition Events
Swim gear
For practice, swimmers have their bathing suit and goggles of course, but also things such as fins and paddles. for meets they use suit, goggles, and cap if you want
In sports, offense,also known as attack, is the action of attacking or engaging an opposing team with the objective of scoring points or goals.

Different Strokes
In swimming, there are 4 different types of strokes:butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle.

Swimming vs football

What is Swimming?
Swimming is derived from the word swim, meaning to move through water by means of fins, tail or the limbs. The term may also refer to move as though gliding through water or, to float on water or another liquid.
What is Football?
American football is a sport played by two teams of eleven players on a rectangular field 120 yards long by 53.33 yards wide with goalposts at each end. The offense attempts to advance an oval ball down the field by running with or passing it. They must advance it at least ten yards in four downs to receive a new set of four downs and continue the drive; if not, they turn over the football to the opposing team.
Swimming Training
different kinds of training can help different strokes. these are different kinds of drills and technique
Football Training
you can do different types of drills to help you. These are different kinds:
Football Competition events
A game starts with the kickoff. The ball is placed on a kicking tee at the defense's 30-yard line, and a special kicker (a "placekicker") kicks the ball to the offense A kick return man from the offense will try to catch the ball and advance it by running.
Football gear
football practice and games use pretty much the same equipment like a helmet, shoulder pads, pads for your legs, and football cleats.
What part of the body does swimming use?
each stroke uses a different part of the body but over all the strokes use almost every muscle in your body
Developing a good breathing technique is perhaps the biggest challenge for beginner and intermediate swimmers. Problems with breathing can easily affect other parts of the stroke. For instance, breathing can cause scissor kicks, poor body position, cross-overs and lop sided strokes.

Many swimmers have a problem with their stroke that is related to their breathing technique without realising that their breathing is the cause of the problem.
The breaststroke is a swimming style in which the swimmer is on his or her chest and the torso does not rotate. It is the most popular recreational style due to its stability and the ability to keep the head out of the water a large portion of the time. In most swimming classes, beginners learn either the breaststroke or the front crawl first. Since the breaststroke is swam with the eyes almost always above water, it is important in lifesaving, as it allows the rescuer to approach the victim without losing sight of them. However, in competitive swimming, the breaststroke is the most difficult stroke, requiring comparable endurance and leg strength to other strokes. Some people refer to breaststroke as the "frog" stroke, for your body moves like a frog swimming in the water.

The backstroke, also sometimes called the back crawl or the upside-down freestyle, is one of the four swimming styles regulated by FINA, and the only regulated style swum on the back. This has the advantage of easy breathing, but the disadvantage of swimmers not being able to see where they are going. It is also the only competition swimming style that has a different start. The swimming style is similar to an upside down front crawl. Both backstroke and front crawl are long-axis strokes. In Individual medley backstroke is the second style swum; in the team medley it is the first style swum.

The butterfly ( among swimmers known as fly) is a swimming stroke swum on the breast, with both arms moving simultaneously, accompanied by the butterfly kick (also known as the "dolphin kick"). While other styles like the breaststroke, freestyle, or backstroke can be swum adequately by beginners, the butterfly is a more difficult stroke that requires good technique as well as strong muscles. It is the newest swimming style swum in competition, first swum in 1933 and originating out of breaststroke.
In many team sports, defense is the action of preventing an opponent from scoring. The term may also refer to the tactics involved in defense, or a sub-team whose primary responsibility is defense. Similarly, a defense player or defender is a player who is generally charged with preventing the other team's forwards from being able to bear down directly on their own team's goalkeeper.
Research Question
Which sport is more difficult, mentally and physically?
I decided that swimming is more difficult mentally because swimming can be very stressful, while football is very difficult physically because training can be very very difficult.








here are some things you do at a meet:

-Check in for your events before warm-up
-Talk to the coaches before scratching or skipping any events
-Discuss with the coaches whether you will be needed to swim on relays
-Don’t ask the coaches any questions that can be answered by looking it up on the board or in the program. (They get a little kooky after 100+ questions in about the first 10 minutes)
-Talk to the coaches before your events to discuss racing strategy or specific details to work on.

All progress in a football game is measured in yards. The offensive team tries to get as much "yardage" as it can to try and move closer to the opponent's end zone. Each time the offense gets the ball, it has four downs, or chances, in which to gain 10 yards. If the offensive team successfully moves the ball 10 or more yards, it earns a first down, and another set of four downs. If the offense fails to gain 10 yards, it loses possession of the ball.
