About Coronado Pop Warner


Coronado Pop Warner's mission is to empower athletes to achieve their maximum potential from participation in team sports in a safe and structured environment. Our programs teach fundamental values, skills and knowledge that our athletes will use throughout their lives.

We seek to provide athletic learning opportunities for children, while emphasizing the importance of academic success. Pop Warner strives to create an inclusive environment for all youth. We emphasize sportsmanship, scholarship and physical fitness as reflected in the life of the late Glenn Scoobie “Pop” Warner.

As the only national youth sports organization that requires scholastic aptitude to participate, Pop Warner is committed to developing athletes both on and off the field.

Since 1929, the Pop Warner Program has been dedicated to both student athletics and academics. At every level, Pop Warner programs seek to educate athlete about the fundamentals of football, cheerleading, and dance, but also the importance of education in an atmosphere conducive to developing proficient athletes who play with integrity and discipline. 



Safety is our Priority

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.
