Youth league football is the most fun and best learning experience a boy can have. My son played and I coached (assistant) from 1st grade until he played in high school, a total of 6 years. He learned alot about teamwork and effort and sportsmanship. I can tell the difference in his friends that did not experience youth football.

Enjoy every minute of your kids season!

Bob I've seen the same with my boy only via baseball and to a lesser extent soccer. Baseball seems to be more universally loved by the kiddos but I have asst coached both and enjoyed the heck out of it. What a great feeling to look outside and see the neighborhood kids organizing their own ball games!

I think soon we will begin to see his friends segregate and identify themselves according to hobby and I am thrilled to think my son will tend towards the sports playing group. The less time my kids spend being told what they want/like/think by a tv/game/computer the more room in their heads for their own thoughts.

My sons first year at Tiny Mites. I'm a Hockey/Baseball guy and never played the foozball. I can honestly say this is one of the best coaching experiences i've been involved in. "Meat" is having a blast starting fullback. My youngest girl cheers for TM and my oldest cheers for Junior midgets. Great organization

my boy took this season off. Although I miss the game day saturday stuff, I kinda am enjoying the break from it all. He will enter high school next year and then I am sure his desire to line up at LB and hit someone, ANYONE coming thru will take over again!. He is done with Pop Warner as I personally feel once in high school, you play high school sports. It was a great experience for him playing PW, I enjoyed the time as well. Good luck to your boys on the field and hope they stay fealthy.

We wrapped up Pop Warner a couple of years ago. My son is now a 10th grader playing JV high school football and lacrosse. Pop Warner was a good experience for him and he learned a lot. It could have been made better by having competent administrators but alas, the people running our organization here are clueless.
