HISTORY. The Warrenton Jr Warriors Football League, founded in 1997, is a nonprofit organization offering youth football programs to residents in and around the Warren County area. What began as a small tackle football program, has grown to offer opportunities for over 200 children annually throughout the spring and fall seasons.
MISSION. Our mission is to teach young athletes the fundamentals of football in a safe, encouraging, positive atmosphere while promoting teamwork, accountability, a strong work ethic, and sportsmanship. We strive to teach our athletes the values and skills needed to be successful both on and off the field.
Each player will receive equal coaching of football fundamentals, while playing time is earned. Game time will be determined by the team’s coaching staff. Decisive factors will include, but not limited to, safety of all players, game situation, effort, attitude, and dedication. We ask that you please take this into consideration and discuss with your athlete before committing to our program.
SAFETY. All of our coaches, board members, and team managers are certified by USA Football in the Head’s Up Program, a course designed to teach and promote safe coaching techniques and concussion awareness, for more information please see our Concussion Fact Sheet for Parents (pdf).

VOLUNTEERS. The Jr Warriors success is based on volunteer work from not only our coaches and board members, but also our parents. We require a volunteer deposit at registration from each player. As a parent, grandparent, sibling, or friend completes the volunteer hours on behalf of the athlete, the deposit will be returned. By requiring volunteers, we can keep our registration costs down and make our football programs more affordable for everyone!
SPONSORS. We are fortunate and thankful to have support from our local community. The Jr Warriors offer sponsorship opportunities for local businesses during the Annual Jr Warriors Golf Tournament, Powderpuff Game, and our flag and tackle seasons.
