FOOTBALL

Pop Warner football has been around since the inception of the league in 1929 by founder Joseph J. Tomlin as a four-team conference in Northeast Philadelphia.

Since then, participation has steadily increased to today's record numbers. Over 250,000 youths participated in Pop Warner-sanctioned football programs in 2010, and those numbers are continuing to grow.

SAFETY FIRST

Kids compete with kids of similar age and size. Pop Warner is the ONLY youth football program (local, regional and national) that sets and enforces a strict AGE & WEIGHT MATRIX that reduces the risk and reality of injuries.

Did you know that Pop Warner football is safer than soccer? Pop Warner football has 12% fewer injuries per capita among 5-15 year olds than organized soccer in the same age range! (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, NEISS)

PERSONAL STATISTICS

Pop Warner exists to use football, cheerleading, dance and a respect for education to develop strong, smart, responsible, healthy young men and women. We give them experiences that build their appreciation for and understanding of leadership, teamwork, and discipline.

While individual statistics may be more common, particularly among older football players, Pop Warner only recognizes the athletic accomplishments of the team, not the individual. We don't track personal tallies of touchdowns or yards rushing per game. We don't count sacks or blocked kicks. We applaud the athletic efforts of the team to reinforce the importance of teamwork, with each member.

We don't try to build stars. We don't want to over-inflate a young ego, nor do we want to risk injuring the self-esteem of a young person. Whether our kids have good days or bad, they are still an integral part of our team…and always will be.

PRACTICE SESSIONS

Practice times are 5:30PM to 7:45PM. From August 1 until school starts, there will be 5 practice sessions per week, Monday through Friday. Practice sessions will be a maximum of 2 1/2 hours duration totaling a maximum of 10 hours per week. Break times are not included as practice time.

When school starts, practice sessions will be reduced to 3 days per week, with a maximum of 6 hours per week. Practices will be held Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Please see the calendar for details.

GAMES

All home games will be played on Saturdays at Terra Nova High School. Regular season away games will be determined in August. It is possible that some of the games may be played on Sunday.
