Pop Warner registration now open

FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Pop Warner is the local youth football and cheer program for Fallbrook youth and registration for the 2019 season is underway.

This season the conference that Fallbrook Pop Warner belongs to, Palomar Conference, has approved removing the weight restrictions for each level of the league. According to league president Rolando Uresti, "This is a great opportunity for kids who couldn't play in prior years due to weight limits. Now, they all get to play."

The breakdown for football division and ages are as follows: Flag is for ages 5 to 7 and the weight is unlimited; Mitey Mites is tackle football for ages 7 to 9 and it is the only league with weight restrictions of 45 to 100 pounds; 10U is for ages 9 to 10 and the weight is unlimited; 12U is for ages 11 to 12 and the weight is unlimited and 14U is for ages 13 to 14 and the weight is unlimited.

Fallbrook Pop Warner is also open for league sponsors this season.

FPW fundraiser Laura Cherevchenko said, "Each year we rely on local businesses to help fund this sport. We have so many needs, from new tackling dummies to extra cheer mats, that it really takes more than just the parents paying for them."

"We are lucky to have sponsors like Jeff and Mary Brantley of Grocery Outlet. They have supported us for two years at our highest level and our season just couldn't happen without sponsors like them," Cherevchenko said.

Uresti agreed and said, "It is such a great feeling to get the kids to come in and thank the sponsors. It really connects the hometown league to the hometown businesses."

Jeff Brantley said, "I played Pop Warner as a child and Mary was a cheerleader so we love to give back to the sport."

Several Pop Warner football players and cheerleaders presented the Brantleys with a 2019 league poster, a signed football helmet and a league jersey, May 15, to thank them for their two years of support.
