The Kiwanis Club of Richmond supported a Pop Warner Football team in the Bluegrass Pop Warner Little Scholars Football League during 2002.
The Richmond Kiwanis team was called the Kiwanis 49ers and they are part of the Giants Division They were lead by 49ers Head Coach Mike Huguely and Assistant Coaches Don Estill and Duran Estill.
The Bluegrass Pop Warner Little Scholars Football League Program provides an opportunity for boys and girls between 5 and 12 years of age to play organized, and well supervised tackle football. Pop Warner follows strict regulations that assign boys and girls to teams based on their age and weight. Players are weighed prior to each game.
The Kiwanis 49ers also have their own cheerleading squad led by 49ers cheerleading coaches Gracie Hager and Becky Humphrey. The cheerleaders are taught basic and advanced cheer routines. The cheer squads perform in front of the stands during each game. In addition to cheering on thier team as they play against opponents, our cheering squads are involved in a competitive cheer competition. The cheerleading squads are an essential part of the Pop Warner football program. All girls and boys are welcome. If you would like to become a cheerleader, if you want to learn the art of cheering, and above all, if you just want to have fun..sign up!
