Return To Play Guidelines - COVID-19

Each sport has had to adapt and re-adapt the playing season(s) in light of the coronavirus. Each sport has specific Return To Play Guidelines detailing the safety protocols and expectations of players and participants. At this time, we are confident that each sport will continue to run as scheduled. If there are changes for our season, such as changes in season dates, a shorter playing season or cancellation, the Football and Cheer Board will address those as they arise and you will be communicated with as decisions are made and policies are adopted. 

Our football and cheer programs follow policies implemented by the DSYSA Umbrella Board and our partnering organizations (Pop Warner and Neighborhood Sports). DSYSA is currently following COVID-19 recommendations and protocols adopted by our Dripping Springs Independent School District. Other influencing and governing agencies making recommendations and mandates are Hays County, Governor Gregg Abbott, and the Center for Disease Control.

DSYSA Pop Warner Football

DSYSA Pop Warner Football and Cheer is one of the largest chapters in Central Texas.  We're proud to be a member of Hill Country Pop Warner and we seek to teach kids the importance of discipline, effort, and teamwork through competitive football.  Each season our goal is the same: Introduce Dripping Springs youth to the fundamentals of football and cheerleading while allowing them to have fun in a safe, controlled atmosphere. We want every child to have an unforgettable youth sports experience. 

Since 1929, the Pop Warner Programs Philosophy has been that athletics and scholastics go hand in hand. At every level, Pop Warner programs seek to develop well-rounded young men and women who learn not only the fundamentals of football, cheerleading, and dance but also the importance of education in an atmosphere conducive to developing sound character while having a good time. 

As the only national youth sports organization that requires scholastic aptitude to participate, Pop Warner is committed to developing America's young people on the field and off. Each year Pop Warner continues to expand its efforts in team and activity participation, as well as visibility and outreach in the community.
