Practice begins on August 1st at Joe Fosina Field. Practice is held from 5pm to 7pm Monday thru Friday for the entire month of August. After Labor Day, the practice schedule from September through November will be reduced to three days per week. In the past, the days were Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. The practice days, times, and locations are subject to change throughout the season. The head coach and/or team mother of each team will provide the players and cheerleaders with an accurate practice schedule. Players will be weighed during the first week of practice and placed upon the appropriate team according to their weight, age, and open spots on each team. Any player that does not meet Pop Warner weight requirements by week three will not be permitted to remain on the team.
Players must be dropped off at practice on time and parents are expected to arrive to pick their kids up approximately 15 minutes before the end of each practice. Players who are not picked up on time will not be able to remain on a team or squad for the current program season. Players must be in the appropriate practice attire.
When the season starts in September, the games are played on Sundays. A non-contact practice may be scheduled on Saturday mornings (Head coach will advise). Game schedules including times and locations will be distributed to all players and cheerleaders as soon as it is received from the league. Games may be played as early as 8:00 a.m. and as late as 4:00 p.m. Parents are responsible for having their children at the game site at least one and one-half hours before the scheduled game time. All players must be weighed-in prior to the start of each game. Parents/Guardians must also be available to provide transportation home immediately following the away games.
After the regular season play the possibility exists that a team may be involved in post-season play. This may include up to and/or into Thanksgiving Weekend. If, in fact the team makes the playoffs, they may have the opportunity to attend a State, Regional or National level game. All will be advised accordingly if post-season play goes into effect.
