Every participant in the Oceanside Pop Warner football program will be taught the basic fundamentals of football and develop athletic skills to play at a competitive level.
Each participant will be given an opportunity to play football with adult supervision and safety standards in mind.
Our primary focus and objective is to teach every budding athlete the importance and value of good sportsmanship, fair play, and meeting their academic standards.
Our coaches will inspire every athlete to go to the next level, hopefully to win each and every game possible. However more importantly, our coaches will teach these children the value of hard work, fair play, and team spirit will go a long way to become good outstanding citizens.
In 2014, Oceanside Pop Warner partnered with Phil Jackson’s Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) in an effort to change the “win-at-all-cost” mentality that has taken over the culture of youth sports.
OPW recognizes the tremendous opportunity for charter-building sports offers for today’s youths; therefore OPW is embracing PCA’s Double-Goal Coaching ® model, where winning is one goal and teaching life lessons is the second, more-important goal.
