History of Pop Warner Football

History of Pop Warner

Pop Warner football has been around since the inception of the league in 1929 by founder Joseph J. Tomlin as a four-team conference in Northeast Philadelphia.Since then, participation has steadily increased to today's record numbers. Over 250,000 youths participated in Pop Warner-sanctioned football programs in 2010, and those numbers are continuing to grow.

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)
 
Pop Warner and USA Football

 
We are happy to announce our partnership with USA Football and its Heads Up Football Program.  The goal for all of us is to ensure that all Pop Warner coaches are certified by USA Football to teach proper blocking and tackling techniques in a better and safer way.

All Pop Warner coaches (head and assistants) must complete the USA Football Level 1 Coach  Certification course annually. 

Pop Warner's number one priority has always been the safety of our participants.  Working with USA Football's Heads Up Football program is the latest step in delivering a safer program to all of our Pop Warner Players.
