Our concession stand is one of the best around.

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.

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.

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.
