tackle football

Milford Eagles Pop Warner provides opportunities for Milford’s youth to learn and play football in an age-appropriate, fun, and safe environment.  Our primary goal is to cultivate a love for football in every participant.

Our philosophy is based on the belief to prioritize broad skill and multi-sport athletic development, teamwork, and sportsmanship over winning.  The program’s philosophy will establish, guide, and support a culture in which all participants accept this philosophy. All board members, coaches and volunteers serve as role models and accept the responsibility to reinforce its goals and teach the core values of hard work, respect, inclusion, commitment, perseverance, responsibility, accountability, family, and community.

Football is a very physically demanding sport. In order for all players to have a safe, fun and successful season, it is imperative that all players participate in all practices. The Head Coach of your team will determine the exact practice schedule and attendance policy for his team.

What to expect:

Football season begins August 1st. During the month of August, your team will practice 10 hours a week. This is usually 5- 2-hour practices or 4- 2.5-hour practices. The first week is dedicated to conditioning, where only helmets will be worn. After the first week, full equipment will be worn.

After Labor Day, the practice schedule will be reduced to 6 hours per week, usually 3- 2-hour practices. Games are scheduled for Saturday or Sunday. The season is 8 weeks long, usually starting the last weekend in August and runs until the middle of October. Travel to away games is the responsibility of the parents of the players. There are 19 other towns in our League. The furthest travel points are Hartford, Danbury, and New London.

At the beginning of the season, every player will be issued a helmet, shoulder pads, rib pads, practice pants and jersey, knee & thigh pads, home and away game jerseys and pants. Players and parents are responsible for mouthpieces, girdles, socks, cleats and any extra padding. It is the players and parents responsibility to care for and maintain all equipment while in their possession. Any issues with equipment, should be reported to the player’s head coach or the Equipment Manager promptly. At the end of the season, all issued equipment must be returned promptly. Players and parents will be financially responsible for lost equipment.

All divisions are all eligible for postseason play based on record. The postseason can last through the first full week in December.  If teams qualify, the Pop Warner National Championships are held at Disney's ESPN Sports Complex in Orlando, FL, during the first full week in December. The league is not responsible for travel costs for players but may assist with a monetary donation to teams when possible.
