Oceanside Pop Warner (OPW) is a 501(c)3 non-profit that was founded for the purpose of developing, fostering, and generating a local Pop Warner Football and Cheerleading program. We are a subordinate member of Pop Warner Little Scholars (PWLS), and are subject to the rules and regulations set forth by PWLS.
We are part of the Westcon Pop Warner Region, a geographical division put in place by PWLS. Within our Region, there are several Leagues. Our League is the Palomar Conference. There are 17 associations that make up Palomar Conference. Our children will play against one of the teams that belong in those associations.
Our organization is run entirely by volunteers. All our coaches and seasonal staff are also volunteers who put in many hours on and off the practice fields each season. The season officially begins in August each year, but our board (elected members/volunteers by our parents) begin preparation for the new season as early as January.
Our organization is funded through registration fees, sponsors, and fundraisers. All funds are put back into the program to pay expenses and make improvements. Some of the expenses we incur each year include: repair and/or replacement of equipment and uniforms, field usage fees, insurance, membership dues, background checks for staff, merchandise for resale, referees, end-of-year participant trophies, participant pictures, and other miscellaneous administrative expenses.
Each year we strive to improve and nurture this program, thus ensuring its continued existence and availability for the community. We appreciate the support and enthusiasm of all our volunteers, sponsors, and parents.
