Hillside Pop Warner Football League was re-established in the Fall of 2004. We are a “Proud” Association of the North Jersey Pop Warner Football League Family of four years! Our program has doubled in size and currently accommodates participants between the ages of 5 through 15. We are also proud to have “Four National Scholar Athlete” Honorees in 2007 and “Three National Scholar Athlete” Candidates for 2008, one of which achieved a 100% GPA!
For the 2010 season, we are under new leadership and will be introducing one new team, a “Cat” Flag Cheerleading team, which accommodates 5 and 6 year olds. And we are also bringing back the "Midget" Football team, which accomodates 11 through 15 year olds. We are also now the "Jr Comets".
Hillside Pop Warner’s objectives are to inspire our youth, regardless of race, creed, religion or national origin, to practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship and physical fitness as reflected in the life of the late Glenn Scobie “Pop” Warner. Hillside Pop Warner strives to make the game fun for all boys and girls. The program stresses learning lessons of value far beyond the playing or spirit days of those involved, such as; self-discipline, teamwork, concentration, friendship, leadership, and sportsmanship.
