We are here to support all youth that want to play football and cheer!
Serving over 5,000 Football and Cheerleaders all across Jacksonville. We are a Non-Profit organization made up of 20 associations spread out over the Greater Jacksonville area.
Kids compete with kids of similar age and size. Pop Warner is the ONLY youth football program (local, regional and national) that sets and enforces a strict AGE & WEIGHT MATRIX that reduces the risk and reality of injuries.
Did you know that Pop Warner football is safer than soccer? Pop Warner football has 12% fewer injuries per capita among 5-15 year olds than organized soccer in the same age range! (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, NEISS)
GJPW remains vigilant in making sure we maintain the safety of our players. Yesterday at our Jamboree there were teams removed from play due to equipment that has not met the minimum standards as set forth by the NAERA or the equipment manufacturers requirements for reconditioning of their helmets. These are not new requirements and the GJPW board made all of our associations aware of the requirements at our annual administrative meeting in April in order to allow all associations the necessary time to remedy any equipment issues they may have. Again our chief concern is the safety of the participants within our program and we will continue to require our associations to meet or exceed the standards set by Pop Warner as well as the manufacturers and Reconditioners Association. Any questions may be forwarded to our board via email.
