for choosing head coaches or is it simply up to the local league? What criteria do they use for choosing in Pop Warner?

Every org in Pop Warner does it differently.  Pop Warner has no criteria, except that HCs are at least 21 years of age.

So what is the normal criteria then? Background checks? Coaching experience? Credit scores? etc...

A background check is done, plus the head coach is required to take a risk management course as well as a coaching course specific to football. In our league this is done after the coach is selected - we don't expect coaches to have these prior to interviewing for the position. The requirements come from national Pop Warner, but they have no rules related to selecting a coach. Associations within the same league likely have differences in their process.

Usually head coaches are chosen by the individual orgs.

I can explain it to you, I can't understand if for you.

I could be wrong but I think there's a new requirement that Pop Warner Head Coaches must take the following course:

It's a $20 deal which you can do yourself or the program should pay for the coach to take it.  I actually thought it had some fairly decent information in terms of how to talk to kids/parents etc...things I wish I would have known sooner.

If you show up for a fair fight, you are unprepared.

The initial selection is done by the local board members.  Once that is done they have to get approved background check and take the head coach course that is required by Pop Warner.  Thats it.
