Our season starts August 1st. Each player is required to condition for 10 hours before they can begin tackle football practice. We practice Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. The regular season is comprised of 8 games. Depending on the team's record, playoffs will follow for 6U and above. 8U and above compete for a spot at the Pop Warner Super Bowl at Camping World Stadium.
Players are issued a helmet, soft shell chin strap, shoulder pads, football game pants, pads if needed, a practice jersey and 2 game jerseys. This equipment must be returned at the end of the season.
Players will need to provide their own cleats and practice pants.

Pop Warner places value on safety measures that make a difference. We have done things in football like reduce contact to 25% of practice time, eliminate kickoffs for our youngest divisions and require that any player who suffers a suspected head injury receive medical clearance from a concussion specialist before returning to play. We recondition our helmets EVERY year to ensure effectiveness.
