Tackle Football

OVERVIEW:

Apex Pop Warner offers the opportunity for participants from 5 years of age to 13 years of age to play football in our leagues. We have three non-competitive developmental divisions for those between the ages of 5 and 9. They are Flag, Tiny Mite, and Mitey Mite. In Flag and Tiny Mite competition no score is kept. Score is kept in the Mitey Mite division, however there are no standings or league champions.

We also offer three competitive divisions for those between the ages of 8 and 13. Each of these age divisions are further broken down into Divisions I and II. League champions are declared in each of these competitive divisions and the champions continue to play and represent their league in the Mid South Regional Playoffs. Mid South Regional Champions represent the region at the National Pop Warner Super Bowl played each December at the ESPN Wide World of Sports located at Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida.

The season begins on August 1st of each year. Teams generally play 7 to 9 regular season games in the months of August, September, and October. All Pop Warner Coaches are required to complete National and Regional Coaches Training. Competitive level teams with winning records at the end of each regular season are also allowed to participate in Region approved Post Season Bowl Games.

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 & 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% fewer injuries per capita among 5-15 year olds than organized soccer in the same age range! (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, NEISS)
