Pop Warner wraps up 2022 season

FALLBROOK – The most fulfilling accomplishment Fallbrook Pop Warner achieved this year was the development and progression of the kids. This season, Fallbrook Pop Warner fielded six football teams and four cheer squads with kids from ages 5 to 14 years of age.

At the end of a fun and exciting season, Fallbrook’s 9U and 10U football teams came out on top of their respective divisions, with Coach Marcus Sorden’s 9U team winning the regional D2 Championship game against Arizona on Nov. 19 while Coach Javier Perez’s 8U football team won the annual “Packwood Bowl” in Ramona.

Fallbrook’s cheerleaders were all invited to compete in the WCC Conference Cheer & Dance Competition. The 8U Cheerleaders took second place, while the 14U Cheer squad won first place in their division. Both cheer squads advanced to the Regional Cheer Competition in Long Beach with the 14U girls taking third overall.

When all is said and done, what makes Pop Warner such an effective and successful program is how it uses football and cheerleading to develop strong, smart, responsible, healthy young men and women. There aren’t a lot of programs kids can attend that teach so many attributes, all while having fun. And though it’s always exciting when our kids achieve milestones like participating in a championship game or competition, it can be just as exhilarating watching your son or daughter make their first tackle or learn a tough routine.

Watching one’s child progress in youth sports while knowing that life will likely place similar challenges in front of them can be a bittersweet and sometimes joyful experience. After all, Fallbrook Pop Warner’s goal isn’t just to give the kids in the community a chance to compete in high school and beyond, the goal is also to prepare our children for life.

Fallbrook Pop Warner will begin taking advance registration information for the 2023 season, in mid-February. Meanwhile registration will officially open on March 1 with the season kicking off during the first week of August.
