Football & Cheer Programs

Football & Cheer Programs 

Our football and cheer season officially begins on August 1st by national rule. Practices will begin August 1st, 2023 at 5:00pm at the Half Moon Bay High School Baseball field.  Practices are five (5) days a week starting August 1st-12th. Practices are then reduced to three (3) days a week for the rest of the season. Practice times are 5:00-7:00 p.m. Practices are held on weekday evenings. Dates and times are subject to change as needed to accommodate use of practice facilities or game schedules. Each Head Coach will have his or her own requirements for practices and participation in games, as well as having to follow league rules.  

Mandatory Conditioning Football & Cheer

Conditioning is a crucial part to be successful on the field. Conditioning prepares players physically and mentally to perform at their top peak on the football field which is always important to be successful as a team.
All football players must complete conditioning prior to receiving equipment or be allowed to participate in contact. 
All cheer participants must complete conditioning practice before engaging in any stunts.  

Pop Warner Certification Football & Cheer

A participant is not part of a team roster until they are officially certified by Bay Area Youth Football & Cheer Pop Warner. All participants must attend a mandatory certification day (location TBD) to be a certified as a player on a Pop Warner Football & Cheer Team. Any participant who misses certification, may not be able to compete in the season.  No registration refunds will be given for missed certification.

The Football & Cheer Season 

The Pop Warner Football & Cheer Season is kicked-off with a game that's played on the Sunday following Certification Day. There are eight (8) games in the regular season.  The official game schedule for the season will not be released until after Certification Day, and subject to changes during the season. The cheer competition schedule has not been released yet. There is an entrance fee at the all post season games for ages 16 and up. 

Our Cheer Squads

Coaches are needed for cheer squads. When registering your cheerleader please note that we need a cheer coach to form squads. We have two coaches currently but need additional coaches for additional squads. 

The following shall be the Minimum Mandatory Play Rule (MPR) for all Pop Warner teams: 16-25 Players (10 Plays), 26-30 Players (8 Plays) and 31-35 Players (6 Plays).All MPRs should be based on eligible players at the time of the game.

  • The plays must be from the line of scrimmage.
  • Kickoffs, extra points, QB intentionally spiking the ball and free kicks shall not be used in fulfilling the MPR requirement.
  • A play shall not count toward fulfillment of the MPR if the play
  • results in a penalty which causes the down to be replayed.
  • All players shall be provided their mandatory plays by participation in “active” plays, without the intent to minimize the action or integrity of the plays. Plays such as, but not limited to, having the center snap the ball to the quarterback, and then the quarterback fall to the ground, while substitutes are playing the other positions, shall NOT be considered as active plays.
  • All players shall receive their mandatory plays by the end of the third quarter, or they shall enter the game at the start of the fourth quarter, and remain in the game until they have received their required number of plays.
Failure to adhere to MRP requirements will result in forfeiture of game in addition to enforcement policies. Each team must have an MPR Recorder and Spotter during each game to make sure all players meet the requirement during games.
