Pee Wees, Midgets and Mitey Mites kicked off this year’s youth league football season with their first practice at La Jolla Country Day School on Aug.1.

The La Jolla Pop Warner Torreys, an affiliate of the world’s largest youth football, cheer and dance program, offers sports opportunities for boys and girls ages 5 to 15. The program places importance on skills and abilities both on and off the field. Pop Warner’s Little Scholars program requires that participants submit proof of passing academic performance, and high academic achievement is rewarded.

“The Torreys are looking forward to a fantastic season with a record number of participants this year,” said La Jolla Pop Warner President Scott Warner. “La Jolla Pop Warner provides flag football opportunities for children 5 to 7, tackle football opportunities for children ages 7 to 15 and cheerleading opportunities for children ages 5 to 15.”

Scrimmages begin during the last two weeks in August, and the regular season runs from the second week in September until the end of October.

Practices and home games take place at facilities provided by La Jolla Country Day School, located at 9490 Genesee Ave.

Registration and roster spots are still available for Mitey Mite, Junior Midget and Midget teams. For more information about La Jolla Pop Warner football and cheer programs or to register your child on a team, visit www.lajollapopwarner.org or call Scott Rosecrans at (619) 886-2716.
