Upcoming Events


Our football season is cancelled due to the effects of COVID-19.  We were really looking forward to beginning our first season in 2020. All registrants will be given a full refund. Please keep looking back to our website for more updates regarding this season along with future opportunities. We are currently working to offer more opportunities for the youth of our community once we are able to do so safely. Thank you for your understanding and support.


Stay safe, happy, and healthy! Pray for one another, especially those suffering from the coronavirus.

Parent Code of Conduct

I will encourage sportsmanship by providing positive support of all players, coaches, and officials. I will treat all players, officials, coaches, and parents with respect regardless of race, sex, age, or ability. I will teach my child to do the same. I will be sure to maintain a positive attitude despite the outcome of any competition. The game is for my child and should always remain fun. I will not yell at my child or another participant for making a mistake. I will not engage in unsportsmanlike behavior such as booing, taunting, or using offensive language. I will respect the officials' calls and never yell at, approach, or question them during a competition. I will refrain from coaching during the game unless I am an official coach. I will never yell at, approach, or question a coach during a game. If I am upset with a coach's strategy or decision during a game, I will wait 24 hours to contact the coach and discuss my concern with them. I will show my dedication to the program by volunteering some of my time to assist in the success of the program. I will take the time to know, understand, and appreciate the rules of the competition. I demand a safe, healthy environment for my child that is free of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and other harmful substances and I will refrain from their use. I understand I will be asked to leave a practice or competition if I show up intoxicated or in possession of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or other harmful substances. My number one goal as a parent is to make sure my child is safe and having fun.

Volunteer Policy

The Junior Popes is a program of volunteers. The success of the program depends on those who devote their time to it. We consider the program a family, and therefore, we must support each other. Each parent is required to devote some of their time to the program. Some volunteer positions include:

  • Head/Assistant Coach
  • Team Manager
  • Concessions
  • Photographer
  • Scoreboard
  • Scorebook
  • Chain Crew
  • Fundraiser/Banquet Volunteer
A signup sheet will be sent out in July. Coaches and Team Managers will be waived of the $300 fee. These positions require extra time and effort and so will be rewarded. Those who do not have the time to volunteer can utilize the buyout option. Parents who do not want to volunteer or cannot volunteer can pay $150 to cover their volunteer requirement. Your child is not fully registered and will not get to play until you sign up for a volunteer position or pay the buyout fee.

Age Requirements

No players can participate on or after their 15th birthday. Players in the 9th grade or above are prohibited from participating. Players must be current 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th graders.
