The New England Region consists of 8 Leagues (Conferences) Central Massachusetts, Hockomock League, New Hampshire Pop Warner, Ocean State Pop Warner, PWFC of Eastern Ma, Southern Connecticut, Western Connecticut and the Rhode Island Southeastern Ma Conference.
However, in spite of our small physical size, the New England Region has the third largest number of teams of the 8 regions.the Pop Warner Football Conference of Eastern Ma being the largest Conference in the country.
The New England Region has over 903 Tackle teams, 692 Cheer Squads, 20 Year Round Teams and 43 Flag teams. New England holds 2 qualifiers the first week in November at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, Ma. They are separated by League strength, first qualifier hosts 1-3-5-7 and the second qualifier hosts 2-4-6-8, The teams that qualify from these events in every category then advances to the New England Regional Finals being held at the DCU Center in Worcester, Ma.
Our teams send in event request forms for parades, social events, community services and fairs. We believe our teams like to display their hard work and enjoy competing. They work very hard during the months of August and September and are more than happy to show off what they have learned. These competitions give them more opportunities to work as a team building confidence, communication and trust among their fellow team members. We also believe it gives them more time to bond with each other and to make some lasting relationships they carry with them into their adulthood.
New England has an Online Educational Training program that is free to all coaches in New England. We feel that training all coaches is a great way for everyone to be on the same playing field. We want all coaches to have access to all information that would benefit them in coaching our children. We also want those team moms that want to get involved to also have access to this training program. It benefits everyone in the program.
