Football


We offer 8-man flag football for kids 5-7 years old.  Flag is the stepping stone for Pop Warner tackle football.  Flag football teams are smaller than the tackle teams and focus on teaching the fundamentals of the game of football without physical contact. 

We also offer 11-man tackle football for kids 7-14 years old in six divisions of tackle football - Junior Mighty Mite (JMM), Mitey Mite (MM), Jr Pee Wee (JPW), Pee Wee (PW), Jr Varsity (JV), & Unlimited. Each tackle division has strict age/weight requirements (with the exception of Unlimited) to reduce risk of injuries and create more balanced competition. All tackle divisions typically have 8 regular season games. MM, JPW, PW, JV & Unlimited are allowed post season games with bowl games or playoff games.

San Marcos Pop Warner Football - Philosophy

 

The objective of San Marcos Pop Warner football is to teach each player the fundamentals of football while providing them an opportunity to play football in an organized, adult-supervised, safety-oriented, and fun setting. We strongly emphasize good sportsmanship, fair play, and teamwork. While we coach athletic skills on a competitive level, and believe winning games is important, our primary focus is forming good citizens and developing fine character. Pop Warner also requires that each student athlete meets specific academic standards.
