Should we ban Pop Warner football through high school?

  • It hurts bad

    Playing pop warner football teaches young athletic studs all kinds of important life skills; such as teamwork, commitment, work ethic, and sportsmanship. Sports like football are great for young kids because they help them stay healthy and get physical activity in every day. Most people against pop warner are probably concerned about concussions and brain damage. Garbage. If you want to reduce brain injuries in football than you should have your kids start playing while they are young, so that they can learn safe tackling techniques early on.

  • Head-Up Certified Coach, Pop Warner

    I played Pop Warner years 35 some years ago. It has changed too much. The weight ranges are too extreme for safety... 35 pounds to 89 pounds in the Tiny Mite Division. The coaches of other teams, and even one on my staff, were way too over the top aggressive with their words and attitudes. The game of football is great, and I will continue to coach as a USA Football certified coach, but for flag only. The parents and current standard of coaches have all but destroyed what Pop Warner was all about. The winning and dominating and intimidation are more important to the coaches and parents than it ever was to any of the 22 kids I had on my team. Truly a disappointing experience and too dangerous for kids under 15. Do you really think a 7 year old kid can learn correct, and safe, tackling and blocking skills? Really? Think again. Start taking the safety of your children seriously and stop being "that" parent. Let kids be kids and let them play and have fun playing, and keep them safe. It is not about you, it is about them. Be a parent.

  • Yes Yes Yes

  • Football equals CTE

    Based on the facts we now know about CTE and repetitive head blows, allowing a child to play football it's literally child endangerment. Any parent who allows their child to play football is acting in a selfish and reckless manner. Parents who act naive or dismiss the scientific findings are feebleminded. Football will definitely destroy your child's mind and future.

  • Soccer is more dangerous

    Football is one of the least concussive sports if you look at it as a statistic. Boys and girls soccer are more prone to concussions, as are boys and girls hockey. The only reason football gets so much flak is because a larger population participates in it, making a higher annual count of concussions. With all the advancements of Pop Warner and helmet technology/ the precautions taken by coaches, football is getting more and more safe, and will continue to get more and more safe.

  • No because they use good protection and don't put you in a team that could easily hurt you.

    There is a strict age/weight scale that makes sure all the children are playing against players their own size. Studies have shown that organized football among children produces fewer injuries than soccer. It's always possible to get hurt but they usually have medical team there if anything happens to anyone.

  • Pop warner is good for kids

    Pop warner normally is very good for kids and teaches them values of competition and team building. However, there are some problems that can arise when parents get too competitive and try to make their kids be the biggest on the team or hold back kids in order for them to be bigger.

  • I found this on the Internet.

    Because you will get a lot more scholarships
    and experience and you stay healthy In soccer or any other sport you don't get as much as you get in football.
    Football makes you stronger so you wont get picked on as much when they see you cause your so strong.
