Who is Coronado Pop Warner?

 

Coronado Pop Warner's Mission is to enable young people to benefit from participation in team sports and activities in a safe and structured environment. Through this active participation, our programs teach fundamental values, skills and knowledge that young people will use throughout their lives.

We seek to provide fun athletic learning opportunities for children, while emphasizing the importance of academic success. Pop Warner strives to inspire youth, regardless of race, creed or national origin, to practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship and physical fitness as reflected in the life of the late Glenn Scoobie “Pop” Warner.


Pop Warner's commitment to academics is what separates the program from other youth sports around the world.

As the only national youth sports organization that requires scholastic aptitude to participate, Pop Warner is committed to developing America's young people on the field and off.

Since 1929, the Pop Warner Program's Philosophy has been that athletics and scholastics go hand in hand. At every level, Pop Warner programs seek to develop well-rounded young men and women who learn not only the fundamentals of football, cheerleading, and dance but also the importance of education in an atmosphere conducive to developing sound character while having a good time.

 

Safety is our Priority

Safety First! is the latest of a number of safety initiatives that Cheerleading's governing bodies have implemented in past years.

The results show, among other things, that cheer's total catastrophic injuries were cut in half from 2005 to 2006*, and that cheerleading's injuries per 100,000 participants is only 2.0, significantly less than the figures for popular women's sports such as gymnastics.


Below are some tips compiled by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association that help reduce cheerleader injuries at all levels:

  • Proper Conditioning:  Physically prepare and maintain your body’s strength, flexibility, and stamina for stunting and tumbling.   Strengthen your core muscles (abdominal and lower back muscles) along with the upper and lower body and include aerobic (running, jogging, cycling, swimming) and anaerobic (wind sprints, circuit training) activities.
  • Exercise Reminders:  Warm up, stretch and cool down for every practice or competition and be sure to rest.
  • Proper Equipment:  Practice on mats or padded flooring until your routines are perfected.  Make sure the mats are adequately sized and sufficient for the activities you’re performing.
  • Spotting:  Have trained spotters present and engaged at all times.
  • Knowledgeable Coaches:  Make sure your coaches are certified in safety, first aid, CPR and AED use.
  • No Horseplay:  Focus at all times during stunting and tumbling activities.
  • Communication:  Request that your coaches review safety precautions, rules and regulations with the squad on a regular basis, and that they establish and implement an emergency action plan.
  • Read Safety Guidelines:  Ask your coaches to be familiar with the latest Pop Warner Rules Book, YCADA (Youth Cheer and Dance Alliance) safety guidelines and participate in the ASEP (American Sport Education Program) Coaches Online Education Training for basics in cheerleading principles;
  • Know Your Limits:  Be aware of your ability level and do not attempt advanced level gymnastic or stunting skills before mastering less advanced skills.  Always have a supervisor present.
  • Treatment of Injuries:  Promptly attend to any injuries you sustain.  Your school or organization’s athletic trainer can assist in the proper treatment and prevention of such injuries.  He or she can also offer an injury prevention education seminar and assist in creating the conditioning routine.
