Commitment:  Upper Merion Youth Football and Cheer is a team sport whereas full and equal participation of each team/squad member is crucial to creating a positive, productive and safe experience for ALL participants. All participants are expected to be present, arriving on time, to each practice, game and/or performance. Consequently, the absence of one player or cheerleader impacts the safety and success of the entire team. Proper notification and adherence to attendance policy procedures is expected. 

The purpose of this policy, as detailed below, is to create the most safe and successful experience for every UM Youth Football Player and Cheerleader.

  • MANDATORY PRACTICE begins the week of August 1st, 2016 with 4 days of practice each week until school begins.
  • Once the school year begins, practice days/times/hours are determined by the organization and coaches.

 

Attendance at all practices is MANDATORY 

Games begin Labor Day Weekend - every team member is expected to attend.

During the season games are scheduled on either Saturday or Sunday. The schedule is set by the Pop Warner Football BuxMont League and released in mid/late August.

Upper Merion Youth Football and Cheer is expected to be a priority commitment during the season. A single miss affects the entire team/squad and impacts those players and cheerleaders who have committed to be at all practices and games.       

 

Football:

All practice equipment is provided except cleats and a protective cup.

All players will be assigned to a team based on registration numbers, experience level of the child and other factors as determined by the organization. Children may be assigned to different teams by the organization in the first several weeks of practice until the final rosters are determined.

 

Cheer: 

*Competitive Team (eligible for Pop Warner Regional/National competitions – If the team qualifies for Regionals/Nationals, additional travel expenses will be required.)

All participants will be assigned to a team based on registration numbers, experience level of the child and other factors as determined by the organization. Children may be assigned to different teams by the organization in the first several weeks of practice until the final rosters are determined.
