What is the age cutoff for football?
Our "Pee Wee Year" runs from August 1 - July 31; players "Pee Wee Age" is their age on August 31st of the "Pee Wee Year". For example, the 2021-22 Pee Wee Year runs August 1, 2021 - July 31, 2022. A player's Pee Wee Age for all sports within the 2021-22 Pee Wee year (2021 Football, 2022 Basketball and 2022 Baseball) is their age on August 31, 2021.

How much is does football cost?
Registration for 2021 Football is $185 for A, B and C levels, and $100 for D level. Registration must be paid in full (and both age and address verification on record) to be allocated to a team and receive practice gear. We also ask for a $100 security deposit when gear is handed out for A, B and C levels. This can be in the form of cash or a check (the check would only be deposited if a player's gear is not returned at the end of the season).

What does my registration fee go towards?
Because we are a non-profit organization our sports programs are run almost entirely on registration fees. Registration fees help pay for field rentals, sport equipment, training aids, insurance fees, official fees, field maintenance, general club expenses (utilities, building maintenance, etc.) and lavatory facilities.

Can we register in person? Where?

You may attend one of our scheduled in-person registration sessions. However, because our registration and team management system is web-based, we do require that you have a valid email address to register. In-person registrations will take place at our Carpenter Field Clubhouse located at 1017 Warren Avenue, Bremerton (Warren Avenue Football Field).

Do you offer any scholarships for players?

Scholarships are dependent on donations, and available on a case by case basis. You may request for scholarships via email ([email protected]), or at an in-person registration. Please note, scholarships have limited availability and must be requested early in the registration process to be considered.

When do practices begin?
Practices begin on August 2nd. Practice days can vary but typically will occur Monday through Friday until the first game. After the first game practices will occur 3-4 times per week at the coaches discretion.

Where are practices and games located?
Practices are held at the Warren Avenue Play Field (Carpenter Field), as are home games for B, C and D levels. All home games for A level are tentatively expected to be played at Bremerton High School's Memorial Stadium.

What should we provide?

Players on A, B and C will be issued a helmet, shoulder pads, a separate jersey and football pants for practice and games. Players on D will receive a helmet and game t-shirt. All players should obtain a set of cleats and a protective cup.

How long is the season?
Football season starts in early August. All games are on Saturday's with the first game being on the Saturday after Labor Day. The regular season runs for 7 weeks. Playoffs continue for another 3 weeks culminating in the League Championships.

Is my child able to play up/down?
Requests to "play down" are rare and made on a case by case basis. These cases are to be presented to the Warren Avenue Board and also to Central Council at one of the KPAPWA meetings which typically take place the first Wednesday of every month @ 8pm, located at Sheridan Parks & Recreation Center. Central Council is the deciding factor in all play down requests. We do allow players to "play up" but highly encourage that players stay within their string level determined by the Pee Wee age bracket. "Play up" requests are to be made to the registrar, coordinator and/or head coach and will be reviewed by the Warren Avenue board for approval.

How can I volunteer?
You may volunteer for one or more of our roles available upon registration. Coaches and helpers that will be interacting with players during practices and/or games are required to fill out a Coaches Pledge, WSP Background Check, and take the online Sudden Cardiac Arrest certification course. Documentation and course links are provided in the "Football Docs" section of this page.

What if I do not want to volunteer?
Although we encourage all parents to volunteer or be available when the time comes, we do have an "opt out" feature built into our registration process.
