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 2024-25 Pee Wee Year runs August 1, 2024 - July 31, 2025. A player's Pee Wee Age for all sports within the 2024-25 Pee Wee year (2024 Football, 2025 Basketball and 2025 Baseball) is their age on August 31, 2024.

How much does football cost?
May 31st - July 31st
A, B, C, & D String - $250
Flag - $150

After August 1st (registration will close August 9th):
A, B, C, & D String - $275
Flag - $150

Gear Security Deposits
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 security deposit when gear is handed out for A, B, C & D levels. Deposits are taken in the form of debit, credit card, or check. The card/check would only run or deposited if a player's gear is not returned at the end of the season.

Please note required deposit amounts for each string below. We had a significant amount of uniforms NOT TURNED IN last season. Each player will need a separate check or credit card receipt for their deposit so we can run it at the end of the season should that player not return their gear. For example, if you have a player on A string and another on B String, you cannot write a check for $600 with both their names on it. You will need a check written out for $300 for each player. 

Again, your bank will only be charged for the deposit if you do not turn in the gear at the end of the season.

A, B, C & D - $300 Deposit
Flag - NO DEPOSIT 

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 at the Warren Ave Clubhouse. However, because our registration and team management system is web-based, we do require that you have a valid email address to register.
Dates: 
TBD at June Board Meeting- There will be two Saturday in-person dates in July 
Wednesday, July 10th 7:00 - 8:00 pm (This is also our July Board Meeting)
 

Do you offer any scholarships for players?

Scholarships are dependent on donations, and available on a case by case basis.
** Requests must be made in person at one of the In-Person Registration days above or during practice. 
** Scholarship requests will be discussed at our August board meeting. We will determine funds available and how much support can be given.
** If partial scholarships are awarded, you will have until the 1st scheduled game to pay the balance or your player will be ineligible until paid.
** NEW scholarship requests WILL NOT be considered after the August board meeting on 8/14/23.

When do practices begin?
Conditioning will start July 24th from 5-7. Practices begin on Wednesday, July 31st. Practice days can vary but typically will occur Monday through Friday until the first game for A, B, C, & D strings. Flag will likely be 3 times a week. After the first game practices will occur 3-4 times per week at the coach's discretion.

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

What should we provide?

Players on A, B, C, & D will be issued a helmet, shoulder pads, a separate jersey and football pants for practice and games. Players on Flag 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 Saturdays 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.
