The Ridley Park Athletic Club is excited to announce our affiliation with the Bux-Mont Pop Warner Football & Cheerleading League. The Parkers Football and Cheerleading programs will compete in the premier youth league in the region, offering our players, cheerleaders and RPAC families a better experience in a league that is directly connected to the NFL and the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Bux-Mont Youth Football League sponsors a Pop Warner youth program of competitive age and weight group tackle football, flag football, and cheerleading. They have a stellar youth safety record, teaching the best tackling techniques and other field safe guards. Being part of a Pop Warner program, our football players will compete with kids of similar age and size, as the league sets and enforces a strict age & weight matrix that reduces the risk and reality of injuries.
Another important component of our new league is teaching and training the ideals of sportsmanship, teamwork, scholarship and development of good character. As a team competing in a Pop Warner league, the Parkers will utilize football and cheerleading to develop strong, smart, responsible, healthy young men and women. A unique facet of our new league is their commitment to education. Our children will be held to student athlete standards that will encourage them to maintain good grades in the classroom while working hard on the fields.
Finally, one of the most exciting changes for our football and cheerleading programs in entering the Bux-Mont Pop Warner League this season is the opportunity for extending our seasons. As we remain 100% focused on building our Ridley Park Football and Cheerleading programs stronger with each season, we have aligned our growing programs with a league that offers Regional and National competitions beyond the regular season playoffs.
The Athletic Club would like to recognize and thank Ed Behrle for all of his time and continued hard work towards finding the right league for our football and cheerleading programs to consistently grow while enjoying the best possible experiences.
The road to the Pop Warner Super Bowl and the National Championship is a long one, and that journey begins this season with Ridley Park joining the Bux-Mont Pop Warner Football & Cheerleading League. Registrations will open in June!
President, Ridley Park Athletic Club
