NO DROP-OFF'S during practice. A parent or guardian must be at the field for the duration of practice in case of weather cancellations or emergencies. 

Practice Uniform:

Football: Any athletic shirt & shorts, football helmet, and cleats 

The first few weeks are NOT a great time to take a vacation, spend a week at camp, or miss practice. The first weeks for these athletes are comprised of conditioning. CWFCA & Pop Warner rules require that  the athletes record 20 hours of conditioning time before engaging in practices with contact. Athletes who miss practice will NOT be allowed to participate in ANY contact until the 20 hours of conditioning are attained.

The season runs from August 1st (starting with a Mandatory 2 week conditioning program) to the beginning of November with the possibility of teams going on to playoffs which could run into December. Please be sure to read through the program information thoroughly before registering so you have all the information needed to decide if tackle football is a sport for your child and to find out what division to place your child in.

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.

The Charlotte Warriors are the oldest and most accomplished youth sports program in Charlotte County, and were one of the three founding members of the Peace River Conference. Our roots run deep!

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 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)

Why There Are No 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.
