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%

the same age range! (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, NEISS)
THERE ARE NO PERSONAL STATISTICS:
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.
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
