A successful university or college football instruction program that offers enjoyment and exercise to a diverse student population and furthers students' passion for sports requires competent, flexible, professional teachers. Principled eclecticism is crucial in curriculum design: teachers must draw on practical experience and a firm grounding in a variety of training theories. This paper offers insights into football instruction and curriculum design that are grounded in theory yet enjoyable for students. A review of key teaching methods and strategies is augmented by the author's personal football coaching and teaching experiences. Key curriculum design principles are discussed: Instructors should help students set goals and define personal success as an incremental process. Verbal praise and physical encouragement facilitate enjoyable football training and enhance learning motivation. Game and competition rules should be readily comprehensible, enabling students to focus on physical activity and the importance of teamwork. Finally, students should encounter a variety of activities with different equipment, fields, rules, goals, duration and members per team. This will increase enjoyment, encourage active participation in training, inspire students' self-challenging spirit and foster independent thinking. This paper can provide an important practical reference for teachers as well as promote college students' love for football.
