Mallard Creek Chargers

2024 Fall Football

Welcome to the Mallard Creek Chargers Pop Warner Football Program

Established in 2009 with three teams, the Mallard Creek Optimist Club's Tackle football program caters to ages 5-13. By 2010, our program expanded to six football teams, proudly joining the Pop Warner, Little Panther's Division. Our teams have grown together, and we eagerly anticipate further growth in the future!

At Mallard Creek Chargers, we believe in using football as a platform to instill strong values and education in our players. With a focus on teamwork, leadership, and discipline, we aim to develop responsible and resilient young men, preparing them for success in their future endeavors.

For the 2024 Fall Season, here is some important information:


1. Age-Based Division: This division offers a 2-year age span for the younger divisions and a 3-year age span for the older divisions. There are no minimum or maximum weight requirements.
Age & Weight-Based Division: For the 2024 season, we are only offering the Tiny Mite weight-based division (5-7). This division follows a uniform series of three basic years of age qualification for each level of play, with a fourth year of eligibility subject to more stringent weight restrictions (the “older/lighter” player).
