Smithfield Pop Warner Football

Welcome to the website for Smithfield Pop Warner Football. We hope you will consider joining our Smithfield Packer Family.

We are always looking for players, coaches and parents to volunteer. The games begin Labor Day weekend and are usually played until the latter part of October. Playoffs/Championships could take the season into December. Hope to see you on the field soon!!


Mission Statement

Smithfield Pop Warner Football is in the business of teaching young athletes the game of football with focus on the value of hard work, discipline and positive attitude. We measure success by the effort given on and off the field, not the score of the game. Smithfield players will be prepared to play successfully at the next level of competition.



We still have players who have not turned in their Pop Warner issued football equipment. It is imperative that everything be turned in for the next season. Please contact the following to make arrangements to get the equipment turned in. Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this matter.  Melissa Allison - (910) 850-5354
