Jersey City Gators: Volunteer

Saturday, March 2

Pop Warner has over 40,000 volunteers and coaches that are being trained every year to offer the best and safest programs for you and your children.

Pop Warner has also established a leadership role in youth football and cheer & dance by requiring all head coaches to pass a coaching education course.

In addition, Pop Warner programs nationwide are required to annually conduct a background check of: Coaches, Board of Directors members and any other persons, volunteers or hired workers, who provide regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players and/or spirit participants. The purpose of these background checks is, first and foremost, to protect the children.
