    What AGE and WEIGHT do you have to be to play Tackle football?

    Players will be weighed in at registration in the spring and again at the team meeting in the fall. If a player is five or more pounds over the weight limit for his division as of the first practice, he will move up to the next division and be placed on another team. The asterisked(*) provisions in each division allow the ‘older/lighter’ player to qualify for that division. The last year of eligibility falls under more stringent weight restrictions as designated below. A child’s age on July 31st is his/her age for the season. A player may gain 1 pound on weeks 2, 4, 6 and 8 for a total of 4 pounds.

    Practices

    Practice schedules will be set by the head coaches and will start on August 1. Pop Warner National mandates 20 practice hours for conditioning and practice before players can put on their pads, stunt, tumble or participate in a game/scrimmage.

    National Pop Warner rules require:

    • 10 hours of conditioning (No pads for football, No stunts or tumbling for cheer) followed by
    • 10 hours of player readiness (No scrimmages for football, Stunt and Tumbling progressions only for cheer)
    • MAXIMUM of 10 hours per week, 2.5 hours per day of practice prior to Labor day

    prior to any athlete participating in regular practice activities.

     

    It is VERY difficult for players missing any of these practices to “catch up” to the rest of the team in terms of development and understanding. Therefore, we ask that each player makes the effort to attend every practice in August. Otherwise, the athlete will have to spend time while the rest of the team is practicing, making up those condition hours under a Pop Warner certified coach’s supervision before being allowed to participate in the rest of the team activities.

    Please plan your August travel plans accordingly!

    Practice time and locations will vary depending on team assignments and field/space availability.

     

    Games

    When the season begins, we will play our home games at Vandegrift High School, and away games on fields throughout central Texas. Game times and locations are assigned by the Hill Country Pop Warner organization. The schedule usually comes out just before the first game is to be played and may change during the season. Four Points Pop Warner has no control over the schedule – we encourage our teams to be flexible.

    Regular season games are played on Saturdays with the season typically beginning the first weekend in September, Labor Day, and running through the end of October. There may be one Sunday game in order to accommodate the Central Texas Cheer Competition. Our football players are strongly encouraged to attend this event to root for their cheerleaders!

    Playoffs for Junior Pee Wee and Pee Wee will begin the following week for those teams that qualify and can potentially run through the first week in December (National Championships in Orlando, FL). Competition for qualifying cheer teams continues through regional championships in November and National Championships in December.

    FPPW registration fees do not cover travel costs incurred to participate at the Regional or National Championships.

    What Age/Weight Division should I register my football player for?

    While there are often players who will play up or down due to weight, experience or playing with a certain team, and given the overlapping of ages across the divisions, these are the most common divisions by grade:
    K -2nd: Tiny Mite
    3rd – 4th: Mitey Mite
    5th: Junior Pee Wee
    6th: Pee Wee
