LEAGUE INFORMATION
Klamath County Pop Warner Football League is a full contact football sport. We are offering 3 divisions - Mitey-Mites, Pee Wee and Unlimited, and Cheerleading for each!
  • Mitey-Mites division is for players ages 7-9, weighing 45-90 lbs
  • Pee Wee division is for players ages 9-11 weighing 75-120 pounds and older/lighter 12 year olds weighing 75-100 pounds at the beginning of the season
  • Unlimited division is for players of 120 pounds ages 12-14.

*A child's age on July 31st is his/her age for the season. A player may gain 1 pound per week after the second game, up to a maximum of 9 pounds.

*Three years in the same division is SUBJECT TO MANDATORY DIVISION move/age up.

Cheerleading squads are offered for all 3 divisions and are for girls ages 7-14 entering the 2nd through 8th grade. We are so excited to be expanding and getting more players involved in the game!! Our 2014 season runs August - October.  For information, you may call 541-891-3780.

TEAMS
Teams are made up of players from same schools to the best of our ability. Teams are on a first paid, first placed basis. Returning players remain on the same team. We do not allow team jumping or selecting which team you will play for. Players are placed on an alternating pattern between their home school until the team is filled up, at that point they will be offered another school choice. The people doing the team assignment do not have children involved in the league, do not have children in school still, and do not know any of the kids so it is a very fair process.

PRACTICES
Practices may begin August 1st.  All football players are required to have 10 hours of helmet only conditioning, then 10 hours of full pad conditioning/light contact PRIOR to full contact. Cheerleaders have a total of 20 hours of comparable conditioning. Players/cheerleaders who come in late or miss practices still MUST meet the requirement prior to full contact/full participation. If a player misses 50% of the practices in a week (with the exception of planned prior approval from the coach) their playing time in the game will be reduced. With planned prior approval, the coach may request that the player run or do other conditioning during the time they miss.

GAMES
Games start the first week after Labor Day and continue for 8 weeks. Games are held every Wednesday and Saturday and the venues change each week. We are fortunate to be able to hold games at Henley, Mazama, Klamath Union, Lost River, Dorris, Weed, Lakeview and Bonanza High Schools. Championship Week is now the 9th week in our schedule and is held at Mazama High School with the championship games being held under the lights.

FOOTBALL EQUIPMENT
All equipment except for mouth guard, jock strap, and cleats is provided. Cleats are offered each year at a discount price through House of Shoes for Pop Warner. Each player will be put in safe equipment. We do not promise new equipment to anyone. We purchase equipment as we are able, however if you have equipment that is torn, please let us know and we will replace it. Equipment will not be distributed to individual players until all registration fees, year end final report card and paperwork have been received. Mouthguards are available from the league to purchase for $1. Players will not be allowed to play in games without a mouthguard. Clear mouthguards are NOT allowed.  Last year we handed out over 6,700 pieces of equipment!!! 

CHEER UNIFORMS                                                                                                                 Each cheerleader will be fitted for a new uniform in late June/early July. Uniforms, including shell, skirt, briefs, and poms, take up to 8 weeks for delivery. Uniforms will only be ordered for cheerleaders with a complete file including all required contracts, sports physical, registration fees, and final report card. Each cheerleader may keep her uniform at the end of the season.
