Football Signals

With the Superbowl being played this Sunday, this WebelosWednesday we are taking a look at some of the signals officials use during the game. During the “Big Game”, when not watching the commercials, see how many signals you can recognize.

They include the following:

  • Offside

  • Illegal Procedure

  • Illegal Motion

  • Illegal Shift

  • Illegal Return

  • Delay of Game

  • Clipping

  • Holding

  • Illegal Pass

  • Pass Interference

  • Roughing The Kicker

  • Time Out

  • Ineligible Receiver Downfield

  • Incomplete Pass, Penalty Declined, No Play, No Score

  • Start The Clock

  • First Down

  • Touchdown

Here are some images of how the signals are made.
