Their will be a lot of people in the stands that participated in this over the years.
All football players and cheerleaders are to meet their coaches in the north end zone no later than 5:30. They will get into the game for free. At 5:45 the announcements will start and all of our teams (starting with flag) will go out onto the field.
After the National Anthem, your child will be brought back to the main gate. Parents can either watch the game with their child or take them home at this time. OUR COACHES WILL NOT BE WATCHING YOUR CHILD DURING THE GAME.
Your coach will have more information or ask Steve or Dom.
Concession stand: all parents are expected to work in the concession stand at least once during practice and games
Our concession stand is one of the best around. We have something for everyone, from hot dogs and hamburgers, chicken tenders, steak n cheese(WRAPS & SUBS), to ice cream, slushies, soda, gator aid, and assorted candy. Some nights we will have hot pizza. Check it out, eat dinner, support our concession stand. Help us out, and donate some time in the concession stand.
It’s easy, it’s fun and it’s a big help.
We normally practice when it rains. Canceling practice will be decided at 5:30.
If there is thunder and lightning we must leave the fields and seek shelter.
As we do not have sufficient shelter, everyone must go to their cars.
So please do not leave if you think there may be a thunder storm.

There will be no warning and you will be asked to leave the property. Please remember that our cheerleaders and football players are very young and most of them have their younger brothers and sisters at the games. Please think first before you make a negative comment.We encourage POSITIVE cheering.
Do not ever drop off anyone at the park entrance (no exceptions)
It creates a safety issue. Please be considerate in parking as we have limited parking.
See our registration page for more information.
Volunteers always needed
During practices and games, your help is very important.
At games we need play counters, chain crews and help in the concession stand.
The entire program, including the property, is run by volunteers.
West Genesee Athletic Club owns and operates the sports complex.
With all of the participants, and the amount of paperwork required by Pop Warner, all volunteers are very important.
Please ask how you can help to make the Pop Warner experience a great one for all of the kids.
Watch your children
Please help us out by supervising your non-participating children.
We don’t want anyone getting hurt or have field equipment damaged.
Insurance says: “No pets on the property” No exceptions!
