What are Pop Warner regulations for switching programs. I've been told that you can switch if the father becomes a coach(for the new league) but the current organization needs to sign a release. Anybody know?

I don't think there is a pop warner rule per say nationally..i think its something they leave up to the local conference.

IN our conference...I have seen alot of kids move here and there...and nobody really cares.

It comes down to boundaries

If your program is in boundary A and Kid is in A but plays in B no waver needed.

If kid lives in B and wants to play for A then org B needs to sign a release fir that player to go to A

If its just a coach and no kid then theres no waivers to my knowledge

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

So if player lives in A and played for A last year but dad has been offered a coaching job in B---can the player go without a release?

Zach,
  Is that a national rule? Or just one that your region/conference goes by?

No, you must release him

Im 99% sure we had national visit our meeting last month and they were talking about waivers. Its governed locally , but national is specific about this to avoid potentional multi area all star. teams

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

If you dont release him he plays with you, if the other org contests it they go through chain if command in your league

It's a national rule.  The former org must sign a release.  We have a copy of the form available on our website.  The exception is if the player has moved to a new boundary, or he has sat out one season.

I believe the process for waivers is national, but each region sets their own boundaries. Locally we have several teams in a single city, and it can be pretty contentious at times. If you think gerrymandering is limited to government politics think again!

You are not required to sign a waiver, and many teams locally do not. The primary reason given is that the loss of kids would prevent associations from fielding teams at a various levels. I suspect it is the more talented kids that are being "recruited", which is a factor as well.

Each conference determines the boundaries of their orgs.  We've gone through the process and it is laborious.

Just to stir the pot, do you wanna come coach for us?  😉

The rule is national like others have said, but enforcement is up to the local conference. I think our conference (mid-florida) has actually done a pretty good job policing this stuff over the last couple years.

Correct.  Our conference does not enforce the rule, namely because there have been practically no issues about it.
