Registration is now open for Red Bank Pop Warner Little Scholars Football and Cheerleading, serving the boroughs of Red Bank, Little Silver and Shrewsbury. With a new administration kicking off the fall 2001 season, parents are being urged to enroll their children in what promises to be a highly successful organization. Children ages 8-15 are eligible to participate in both the football and cheerleading programs.

New this year will be an instructional flag football program for children 6-7 years old, as well as a "mascot" cheerleader program for 5- and 6-year-olds.

Great care is given to be sure the age and weight requirements for all children are strictly followed in each division. This and a scholastic GPA of no less than 2.0 or 70 percent is also required for each player’s participation. There is no weight restriction for the cheerleading program; however, age and GPA requirements are also adhered to. Practice and games will be held at the Count Basie athletic field, which recently received new lighting. More information about the Red Bank Pop Warner Little Scholar signups and other activities is available by calling the Red Bank Pop Warner hot line at (732) 530-2775.
