Dripping Springs Pop Warner Youth Football and Cheer Program Announced for Local Area

DRIPPING SPRINGS, TX (January 16, 2017) -– Dripping Springs Pop Warner Tigers youth football and cheer program has officially established operations and plans to open registration for students throughout the Dripping Springs area in April. The non-profit organization emphasizes programs that put safety first and will focus on building youth appreciation and understanding of leadership, teamwork, and personal responsibility skills they can use throughout their lives. Formed and managed by Dripping Springs’ area parents, the new charter is dedicated to developing well-rounded young men and women as they advance in sports and beyond.

With more than 325,000 young people ranging from ages 5 to 16 years old, Pop Warner is the largest youth football and cheer program in the world. The Pop Warner youth sports organization was founded in 1929 and offers the only program that requires participants to maintain strict academic standards in order to remain in active standing. Pop Warner’s commitment to academics distinguishes it from other youth sports programs both locally and around the world.

The safety-first football program ensures that kids compete with players of a similar age and size. As such, it is the only youth football program (local, regional and national) that sets and enforces a strict age & weight matrix that reduces the risk and reality of injuries. A study performed by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, NEISS, found that Pop Warner football is safer than organized soccer programs, with 12% fewer injuries per capita among 5-15 year olds.

“Exceptional sports training and technical instruction will be the standard in our coaching. But our approach will be well-rounded and also highlight the importance of education and the development of sound character,” said Clinton Friday, Dripping Springs Pop Warner’s President. “Our football and cheer programs will include instruction on fundamental values, skills and knowledge that young people will use throughout their lives. And we aim to have a lot of fun in the process.”

Registration for the 2017 football and cheer season opens in April of 2017. In order to participate, applicants must be between 5-12 years of age as of August 1st, 2017 and meet the Pop Warner age-weight requirements. Dripping Springs Pop Warner maintains a Mandatory Play Rule (MPR) for all teams so that every child plays. The organization will make every attempt to field the appropriate number of teams that will allow all registered children with an opportunity on the field.
