Emerald Coast Green Wave


Our Tackle Football Program

At the Emerald Coast Green Wave, we're proud to be part of the Pop Warner family, where football and cheerleading are not just sports—they're opportunities for young athletes to grow, learn, and succeed.

Safety First

We prioritize the safety and well-being of our athletes, implementing measures to make the game safer without compromising its integrity. From reducing contact in practices to eliminating kickoffs for our youngest divisions, we're committed to ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for all.

Academic Excellence

We believe in the power of education. That's why we're dedicated to academic excellence, requiring all participants to maintain a 2.0 Grade Point Average (GPA) in order to take the field. Through Pop Warner's Scholastics program, we support our athletes in achieving their full potential both on and off the field.

The Journey to Championship

Our season kicks off on August 1st, with players eagerly preparing for their season openers in late August or early September. Throughout the season, teams play a 7 to 9 game schedule, with playoffs for select divisions at the end of October. From there, league champions have the opportunity to compete in regional championships, with the ultimate goal of earning a spot at the prestigious Pop Warner Super Bowl in Orlando.

Whether your child dreams of scoring touchdowns or leading the cheer squad, there's a place for them at Emerald Coast Green Wave. Join us in creating unforgettable memories and building lifelong friendships.

Age-Based Teams

Pop Warner offers two formats for tackle football programs: age/weight schematic or age based schematic.

The Emerald Coast Green Wave utilizes the age based schematic which provides a 2-year age span for the younger divisions and a 3-year age span for the older divisions. No minimum or maximum weights, which allows parents and guardians some flexibility in their team of choice based on the size of their athlete.

Team Focused

No Individual Stats:
Emerald Coast Green Wave only recognizes the athletic accomplishments of the team, not the individual. We don't track personal tallies of touchdowns or yards rushing per game. We don't count sacks or blocked kicks. We applaud the athletic efforts of the team to reinforce the importance of teamwork, with each member. We win together.

Whether our kids have good days or bad, they are still an integral part of our team… and always will be.

Every Kid Plays: In keeping with a team focus, our Mandatory Play Rule means that every athlete gets playing time during the game.
