Pop Warner Football is designed to put players in divisions based on age & weight. Every tackle football player will be weighed in at the beginning of the season to determine division assignment. Players must maintain the weight requirements throughout the season for their division. Players will be weighed prior to each game by Coastal Pop Warner officials.
Scholastic are also an important part of Pop Warner Football and Cheer. Each year, Pop Warner gives out scholarships to players that excel in the classroom. To be able to compete in Pop Warner, each player must maintain a 2.0 GPA. Final report cards for the 2012/2013 academic year must be turned in and reviewed before a player will be allowed to participate.
All Pop Warner Football and Cheer coaches have a mandatory background check as well as they have to be NYSCA certified. In addition, Head Coaches have to be certified through USA Football and attend a clinic on Risk Management. If you are interested in coaching or volunteering please contact us.
Pender United will practice in Rocky Point at the Rocky Point Joint Development Center located at 17808 NC Hwy 210, four miles west on NC Hwy. 210 past Heide Trask High School. We will play our games in Wilmington at Ogden Park and plan to host some games at Heide Trask High School. We will compete against other teams that are in Coastal Pop Warner. There are currently 2 Pop Warner organizations in Pender County, 1 in Brunswick County and 5 in New Hanover County.
Looking forward to an exciting season of Pop Warner Football in Pender County. FEAR THE STORM!
