POP WARNER FACTS

Consisting of approximately 425,000 young people ranging from ages 5 to 16 years old, Pop Warner is the largest youth football, cheer and dance program in the world.
Pop Warner was founded in 1929, continues to grow and serves as the only youth football, cheerleading & dance organization that requires its participants to maintain academic standards in order to participate. Pop Warner's commitment to academics is what separates the program from other youth sports around the world.

Each year Pop Warner continues to expand its efforts in team and activity participation, as well as visibility and outreach in the community.
Since 1929, the Pop Warner Programs Philosophy has been that athletics and scholastics go hand in hand. At every level, Pop Warner programs seek to develop well-rounded young men and women who learn not only the fundamentals of football, cheerleading, and dance but also the importance of education in an atmosphere conducive to developing sound character while having a good time.

SPORT PARENT CODE OF CONDUCT
The essential elements of character building and ethics in sports are embodied in the concept of sportsmanship and core principals: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and good citizenship. The highest potential of sports is achieved when competition reflects these ‘six pillars of character .”
I THEREFORE AGREE:
I will not force my child to participate in sports.
I will remember that children participate to have fun and that the game is for youth and not adults.
I will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or the safety
I will learn the rules of the game and the policies of the association and league.
I (and my guests) will be a positive role model for my child and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect
and courtesy, and demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials, board member, volunteers
and spectators at every game, practice or other sporting event.
I (and my guests) will not engage in any kind of un-sportsmanship-like conduct with any official, coach, player,
board member, volunteer or parent such as booing and taunting: refusing to shake hands, or using profane
language or gestures.
I will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and well being of the athletes.
I will teach my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.
I will demand that my child treat other players, coaches, officials, board members, volunteers and spectators
with respect regardless of race, creed, sex or ability.
I will teach my child that doing one’s best is more important than winning so that my child will never feel
defeated by the outcome of a game or his/her performance.
I will praise my child for competing fairly and trying hard, and make my child feel like a winner every time.
I will never ridicule or yell at my child or other participants for making a mistake or losing a competition.
I will emphasize skill development and practices and how they benefit my child over winning. I will also de-
emphasize games and competition in the lower age groups.
I will promote the emotional and physical well being of the athletes ahead of any personal desire I may have for
my child to win.
I will respect the officials and their authority during games and will never question, discuss or contact coaches
at the game field and will take time to speak with coaches at an agreed upon time and place.
I will demand a sports environment for my child that is free from drugs, tobacco and alcohol and I will refrain
from their use at all sports events.
I will refrain from coaching my child or other players during games and practices, unless I am one of the
official coaches of the team.
I will refrain from disrespecting any player, coach, administrator, opponent, and referee in any social media and
will not post any pictures and names or be subject to immediate suspension.
