DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that Pop Warner football is safer than soccer? Pop Warner football has 12% fewer injuries per capita among 5-14 year olds than organized soccer in the same age range! (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, NEISS) 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. Established in 1929 by founder Joseph J. Tomlin as a four-team conference in Northeast Philadelphia participation, has steadily increased to today's record numbers. With over 250,000 youths participating in Pop Warner-sanctioned football programs in 2010, the numbers have just continued to grow.
