2024 Illinois Jr Celtic Tackle Football

Pop Warner football has been around since the inception of the league in 1929. Since then, participation has steadily increased to today's record numbers for children ages 5-14 (age determined as of July 31st of the current year).

On fields across America, Pop Warner is continually making our game safer and better, while retaining what makes the sport of football so great for young people.

Pop Warner places value on safety measures that make a difference. That’s why we have also done things in football like reduce contact to 25% of practice time, eliminate kickoffs for our youngest divisions and require that any player who suffers a suspected head injury receive medical clearance from a concussion specialist before returning to play.

Players begin practicing on August 1 in preparation for their season openers, usually held during the last week in August or first week in September. A participant can be considered eligible for the season when he/she has met the four basic criteria for participation: A candidate must provide proof of age, parental consent, a medical examination, and academic fitness.

What makes Pop Warner unique as an organization is our commitment to academic excellence among our participants. A participant must maintain a 2.0 Grade Point Average/70 percent in school in order to participate during the season.
