What’s Happening

South Tahoe Pop Warner will take football sign-ups from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday during August at the entrance to the South Tahoe High School Field of Dreams. Especially needed are PeeWee football players, both new and returning. Pop Warner is offering free sign-ups to eligible PeeWee football players. The age and weight classification for PeeWee football is: 9, 10, and 11 years of age, 70 to 115 pounds, and 12 years of age, 70 to 95 pounds.

All players must have a physical to enter the field for practice. Mandatory conditioning before the start of the season is required and still going on. Because of the conditioning requirement, youth football is the safest and least injurious youth sport in the nation.

If you are interested in signing up a player, come to practice at the South Tahoe High School Field of Dreams. Applications also are available at Emerald Bay Dentistry, 1201 Emerald bay Road, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or contact president Jean Yingling at (530) 577-2593 or Lisa Slater at (530) 544-6736 or visit the Web site at southtahoepopwarner.com.
