Hill Side Raiders

There are Seven Divisions of play, all determined by a strict age/weight scale to ensure safe and balanced competition.

Ages and Weights for Tackle Football Programs:

Which Team Is Right For You?


 Some ages will overlap on teams, as the Pop Warner matrix is designed with weights for the safety of our football players. 
Our qualified staff will take participant's previous experience into consideration and place them on the team
that will give them the best opportunity to be successful. 

There is no weight limit in our cheer program
