Home of the Torrance Panthers


Welcome to Torrance Pop Warner! We are excited that your athlete is interested in joining the Panther Family.  Our staff of volunteers will do all we can to provide your family the information and support you need  to become a member of one of our TYFC teams.  Whether your child is a first time player or a seasoned veteran, we hope you will enjoy your experience with our organization.

We are eligible to field teams for Flag,  6U, 8U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U, 14U.  We are planning on fielding more teams this year and will do our best to place you athlete in the most age appropriate team.  
*Please note our Flag and 6U teams will be traveling outside of our conference for games. 
*It is possible that players may have to merge into other divisions depending on registration numbers. If registration numbers are low and we are unable to field a team for Flag or 6U, refunds will be given to registered participants.

Torrance Pop Warner exists to use football, cheerleading, and a respect for education to develop strong, smart, responsible, healthy athletes. We give them experiences that build their appreciation for and understanding of leadership, teamwork, and discipline.

Torrance Pop Warner only recognizes the athletic accomplishments of the team, not the individual. We don't track personal tallies of touchdowns or yards rushing per game. We don't count sacks or blocked kicks. We applaud the athletic efforts of the team to reinforce the importance of teamwork, with each member.

We don't try to build stars. We don't want to over-inflate a young ego, nor do we want to risk injuring the self-esteem of a young person. Whether our kids have good days or bad, they are still an integral part of our team…and always will be.
