Age Requirements

The Cary Chargers (CPW) are committed to providing our players with the best possible experience in athletics. We want our players to be engaged and excited about football at all levels. We strive to give them an atmosphere where they feel safe and can learn the fundamentals of the game. Due to the wide weight ranges, we encourage all players to remain at the lowest level until they age out of that group. This is especially true for players with little or no experience.

CPW strongly suggest that all 7yr old players remain in Tiny Mite division to gain proper experience in tackle football.

Practices
Practice begins Monday, August 1, 2022. The first few weeks are not a great time to take a vacation, spend a week at camp, or miss practice for tackle or flag. The first weeks of football are comprised of football fundamentals and a great deal of conditioning. We will practice in practice gear (t-shirt & shorts for at least the 1st week of practice).  CFF & Pop Warner rules require that tackle football players record ten (10) hours of conditioning time before engaging in practices with contact. Players who miss practice will not be allowed to participate in any contact drills until the ten (10) hours of conditioning is attained. Coaches may choose to have players practice in helmets only to help the players become used to wearing their helmet.  During the first 3-4 weeks, tackle football players likely will practice 4-5 days a week. Typical practice time is from 6:00 PM until 8:30PM. A practice cannot last longer than two (2) hours of active practice time. It may run longer overall to facilitate breaks. Throughout the regular season (after Labor Day), practices are limited to three (3) days per week for 8U-14U Division and two (2) days per week for the Tiny Mite Division. WE DO PRACTICE/PLAY ON LABOR DAY WEEKEND! PLEASE TRY TO PLAN ANY FAMILY VACATIONS ACCORDINGLY.

Games
Home games are played at Cary High School Stadium.  We will not have a game schedule right away.  
We do know dates but we will not receive times until a few weeks into August!  Here is what we do know:
-YOU WILL HAVE A GAME EVERY SATURDAY STARTING August 20, 2022.  
-THE REGULAR SEASON ENDS ON October 29, 2022 (if your team makes the playoffs, the season can extend into the end of November 2022)
