Mission Statement  

North Jersey Conference is committed to provide each athlete, both football & cheer, with an enjoyable learning experience. We are dedicated to improve the skills of each participant through good coaching, practice and competition. We understand that the primary reason young athletes participate in sports is to have fun while competing with each other. We believe every athlete matters and our mission is to provide the opportunities and training necessary for all to learn and compete at his or her greatest ability. We also will strive for academic achievement for every participant, believing that academics and sports go hand-in-hand in shaping our young athletes. Finally we believe that while competing to win is important, the greater value lies in competing with honor, practicing good sportsmanship and being gracious in victory and defeat.

Goals & Philosophy

The general objectives of Pop Warner are to inspire youth regardless of race, creed, religion or national origin, to practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship, and physical fitness. Pop Warner strives to make the game fun for all boys and girls. The program stresses learning lessons of value far beyond the playing or spirit days of the boys and girls involved, such as: self-discipline, teamwork, concentration, friendship, leadership, and good sportsmanship. With such goals in mind, and providing an opportunity to participate in an organized, supervised environment with emphasis on maximum safety and participation, Pop Warner offers young men and women a unique memorable experience.
