Greater Jacksonville Pop Warner


What is required* to start an association and/or join GJPW?

The minimum requirements to join Pop Warner are as follows:

  • Must be registered 501c3 organization with the State of Florida
  • Must have an association board of directors in place with appropriate association by-laws (you can google sports association bylaws for samples but these are the rules of the association which must be published
  • Must enter GJPW with a minimum of 2 football teams in different competition levels. (One Cheer Team is permissible)*
  • Must have equipment and uniforms on hand or have access to having these items handled monetarily. (equipment and uniforms are a large investment and need to be considered in your expense to start a new association.)
  • You can petition our board to join Pop Warner if the above items have been satisfied and approved by our Expansion Committee.

If you have your organizational paperwork together and meet the requirements above let us know and we can set up for you to present to our expansion committee. If you have any further questions you can contact us at 904-580-GJPW.

*Extenuating circumstances will be considered by our board on a case by case basis if those concessions are for the betterment of the program. 

The above requirements are subject to change at any time if circumstances are approved by our board for the betterment of the league as a whole. 


What if I only have one or two teams?

If you only have one or two teams we suggest you begin by joining one of our already established sports associations. You can contact them directly by visiting our Where Can I Play page and finding the closest association to where you live.
