Arizona Pop Warner is gearing up for its 52nd season with July registration events held across the Valley. AZPW is held to the highest standard of safety and academics for football players and cheerleaders alike. It is the only youth sports organization that requires participants to perform in the classroom to play on the field.

If you missed the registration events last month for the North Central Pop Warner, additional registration days are set for 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, July 11 and 18 at Apollo High School, 8045 N. 47th Ave. Fees vary; parents are asked to bring their child’s birth certificate and most recent report card containing grades for all four quarters. Both the parent/legal guardian and child must be present at registration.

Teams will aim for their chance to play and cheer their way to the Pop Warner National Championships in Orlando, Fla., in December. For information about North Central Pop Warner, visit
