History and Philosophy of Oakmont Pop Warner
Oakmont Pop Warner was first established in 1966 as the Westminster Chargers and as a football-only program. With the help of dedicated volunteers and support from the local communities, the Oakmont Pop Warner program has grown significantly since our inaugural year, and in the fall of 2011 entered its 45th year of competition.
Our program is based at Oakmont Regional High School in Northern Worcester County and is open to participants from Ashburnham and Westminster (Hubbardston also welcome). We are members of the Central Massachusetts Pop Warner League. (www.cmpwfl.com)
We offer both cheering and football for children between the ages of 5 and 15 years old, and typically we field a football and cheering team at each of the 6 levels of competition in the Central Massachusetts Pop Warner League. We have approximately 100-150 children participating annually.
The Oakmont Pop Warner program has four basic goals for participants in the program:
Oakmont Pop Warner is a family oriented organization with numerous planned activities that allow families to develop life-long friendships and bonds with other families in the organization. We hold monthly organizational meetings throughout the year on the first Monday of each month. The preseason typically begins on August 1st, and the regular season usually begins the 1st weekend in September and lasts for 8 weeks. The four upper levels of football and cheering teams can qualify for the post-season which may include Central Massachusetts, New England Regional and even National Pop Warner events.
The Pop Warner Mission
The mission of Pop Warner Little Scholars is to enable young people to benefit from participation in team sports and activities in a safe and structured environment. Through this active participation, Pop Warner programs teach fundamental values, skills and knowledge that young people will use throughout their lives.
Pop Warner seeks to provide fun athletic learning opportunities for children, while emphasizing the importance of academic success. Specifically, Pop Warner seeks to familiarize players and spirit participants with the fundamentals of football, cheerleading and dance. Pop Warner strives to inspire youth, regardless of race, creed or national origin, to practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship and physical fitness as reflected in the life of the late Glenn Scobie “Pop” Warner.
