Torrey Pines Pop Warner to partner with NFL Flag for Spring Flag Football

Torrey Pines Pop Warner has announced that it plans to partner with NFL Flag Football to form spring flag football teams that will practice and play in the Carmel Valley area.

NFL Flag Football plays six-man flag football games that allow both running and passing. Torrey Pines Pop Warner says it plans to form several teams of 7-9 kids in each age group in an effort to give each child as much playing time as possible.

“Our goal is to make kids fall in love with the game of football. This is a great opportunity for kids to have a lot of fun, develop skills and get a ton of playing time,” said Pop Warner Board Member Ward Wilsey. “My kids played on an NFL Flag team this past fall, and I couldn’t have been more impressed.”

While there will be several teams per age division, the teams will practice together in an effort to learn the offensive and defensive techniques used by actual Torrey Pines Pop Warner teams, which are based on the same strategies used by the Torrey Pines High School Football Team.

“Our goal is to develop kids from the flag level all the way until they get to high school. We want to make sure they fall in love with the game, and have the skills and knowledge necessary to eventually play in the Torrey Pines Program.”

To sign up for the Torrey Pines Pop Warner Spring Flag League, parents should sign up at and email a copy of their receipt to
