YES WE TRAVEL ALL OVER THE STATE!!
Tiny Mite/Rookie Tackle teams typically play for a winner take all Bowl game at the end of the year. This depends on how many teams are fielded by the rest of the league. A League Champion from both leagues will be crowned regardless. If PPPW and RMPW field enough teams, a two round playoff will take place for a State Champion.
Our 2024 playoff format will be a bit different than we are used to. We are competing for a TRUE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP versus other Colorado Youth Football Teams. More information to be provided at a later date! Our Bears will have a chance to play for a League Championship, Conference Championship, State Championship, Regional Championships (Southwest Region Pop Warner SWRPW) and National Championship (USA Pop Warner). All via single elimination playoff format.
First round playoff games take place during the First or second weekends of October.
State Championships take place in the first weekend of November at Colorado State University's Canvas Stadium.
Regional Championships are typically held the second weekend of November in Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico Louisiana or Arkansas against teams from each of those states.
National Championships take place the first week in December at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida against the best teams in the Country.
