Maybe you're not a sports person. Maybe you don't even know what a first down is. However, the great thing about sports documentaries is that you don't have to like or even understand the game to become deeply invested. If you teared up during Brian's Song and felt your heart grow three sizes while watching The Blind Side , chances are you'll find a documentary just as entertaining. From hockey to boxing to competitive cheerleading, Netflix has plenty of riveting sports documentaries and docuseries available to stream, and while there aren't nearly as many films about women's sports as there should be, Netflix's selection still doesn't disappoint.
