Pop Warner Home Town Eligibility Guidelines:
Our 2013 season is only a couple months away!
We want to make sure all Pop Warner families are informed about Pop Warner eligibility in regards to playing for your neighborhood team. The East Manatee Bulldogs are a proud member of the Foundation for Youth Development Conference which is the only Pop Warner Conference in Manatee County. Pop Warner regional guidelines prohibit any participant that resides in Manatee County to cross conferences and participate in Sarasota County Pop Warner organizations which are members of the Peace River Conference. The same is also true for Sarasota County residents and their participation in Manatee County Pop Warner teams.

East Manatee Bulldogs and The Pop Warner Difference:
Pop Warner’s requirement is to conduct a background check on everyone associated with our organizations staff. This includes Coaches, Board of Directors members, and any other persons who provide regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with players and/or cheer participants.
Pop Warner also sets a strict Age/Weight Matrix that ensures your participant(s) are competing with other teams on the same level. It is the goal of Pop Warner and the East Manatee Bulldogs to provide each participant and parent with a great experience. Pop Warner Little Scholars outlines the best way for our youth cheerleaders and youth football players to enjoy their overall experience.
Pop Warner Code of Conduct
Pop Warner’s National Code of Conduct is a main reason that Pop Warner Little Scholars is one of the most elite youth sports programs. That being said our staff, parents, and players are held to a higher standard. EMB works as hard as possible to ensure that the guidelines are followed. If you feel someone in our organization is acting inappropriately please notify our staff.
