Hundreds of young athletes in central Virginia are gearing up for the Pop Warner Football and Cheerleading season.
The Downtown Athletic Store hosted registration and uniform fittings Sunday afternoon. The league issued kids ages 5 to 15 top-of-the-line pads, helmets, and cheerleading uniforms for the season.
After waiting in line, kids got a free snow cone to cool off and relax. Six counties in central Virginia participate in the fall league.
Leslie Robert, from Pop Warner Football, said “It’s just something about trying on equipment that just kind of leads into the season and gets people fired up."
Pop Warner Football and Cheerleading is celebrating its 10th season as a league in central Virginia. The new season kicks off on August 1.
