    Dear Parents,

    Willamette Valley Youth Fooball officially parted ways with National Pop Warner. What does this mean to you and your player? It wasn't much more than a name change and I have included some bullet points below:

    • We will continue to play the same teams as we have in years past.
    • We will continue using AAU as our insurance provider.
    • We will continue to follow the USA Heads Up program to insure our coaches are certified and trained in correct tackling/blocking technique.
    • We will continue to recognize those players who follow the Academic guidelines as previous years.
    • The rule book is essentially the same with one major change this year.
      • 6th grade (Jr. Midget) will be an unlimited weight class just like 7th and 8th

    Why the change? Mainly it was due to our rule book not being the same as Pop Warner's rule book. The biggest difference between our rule book and Pop Warner's is how teams are formed. Our league follows more of a "grade" perspective and Pop Warner uses an "age" approach allowing older players to play down with younger players.

    How does this affect Autzen? We will continue to play teams from Rogue Valley during our Autzen Championship Weekend.

    Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

    Thank you,
