Zero Tolerance behavior
Please remember that at all games, home and away, we must always support our kids in a positive manner. This is very important. We have a “ZERO Tolerance Policy” for our property and organization.
Negative cheering or comments by anyone towards anyone (players, coaches,referees and spectators) at a game will never be tolerated.
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.
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 great help.
Volunteers are always needed. Please Help Us!!
During practices and games, your help is very important.
Games will not start and can be cancelled if we don’t have play counters and chain crews. Also, we can’t use the scoreboard or announcers without an adult scoreboard operator and someone to announce. Also, help in the concession stand is critical.
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.
Always 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!
