2019 AGE MATRIx
There is nothing scarier to a child than playing a contact sport like football and going up against a much bigger player.
Pop Warner football is aware that matching up players who aren't of similar size may be asking for trouble. Be it in injuries or just a frightening scenario that might turn children away from football. The age/weight matrix has been fine tuned throughout the years with the intent to make sure teams playing against each other are of similar age and size.
How does it work?
Each division has both an age range and a weight range that players must fall within. For an upcoming season, a player's age on July 31st is his/her age for the entire season. However, recognizing that young kids will grow, a player may gain one pound every other week after the first game.
