Hampshire Youth Football & Cheerleading announces partnership with Pop Warner.


Hampshire Youth Football & Cheerleading (HYF&C) is extremely excited to announce that it has joined the Pop Warner Little Scholars organization.   HYF&C has been serving as the feeder program for Hampshire High School for the last 25 plus years and is very proud of the accomplishments of their past football players & cheerleaders at the high school level.  As the largest program in the Hampshire, Gilberts & Pingree Grove area, HYF&C’s partnership with Pop Warner will only strengthen the long line of student athletes that have built their skills at the youth level throughout the years and gone on to great success at the High School & College levels.

Pop Warner, founded in 1929 is the largest youth athletic association in the world, with over 425,000 student athletes participating in the football and cheer programs in 2014.  As the only national youth sports organization that requires scholastic aptitude to participate, Pop Warner is committed to developing America's young people on the field and off. Each year Pop Warner continues to expand its efforts in team and activity participation, as well as visibility and outreach in the community.  At every level, Pop Warner programs seek to develop well-rounded young men and women who learn not only the fundamentals of football, cheerleading, and dance but also the importance of education in an atmosphere conducive to developing sound character while having a good time.

Both organizations look forward to a great 2015 season.
