Rain was not a deterrent for the Rancho Bernardo Pop Warner Cheerleaders as they brought their spirit out to cheer on the more than 6800 participants at the 4th annual “Finish Chelsea’s Run” event on March 1st. The event took place in Balboa park in whatnormally is sunny, San Diego, California. The run commemorates the life of Chelsea King, a bright, local teen who was kidnapped and slain in the same park that these girls practice in all season. Despite the tragedy, members of the community bonded together and have chosen to honor this young girl’s life that ended far too soon as she set off for a run that she never completed. The run is a way that the community has bonded together and shown solidarity by symbolically “finishing” her run and in turn raising money for scholarships for other promising, local youth.
This program grants Youth Coaches FREE admission to the Glazier Clinics. To clarify, qualifying Youth Football Coaches do not hold a football coaching position with any type of school or professional sports organization. High school and junior high school coaches are not eligible for this scholarship program.
Congratulations to our 2014 Head Coaches!

RBPW and 41 other youth football leagues in the San Diego area have committed to the future of youth football by adopting a new USA Football. The Heads Up Football program ensures a positive youth football experience and advances player safety by providing league wide coaching education and teaching resources that benefit players, parents and coaches.
USA Football is the official youth development partner of the NFL, the San Diego Chargers and the league’s other 31 teams. These 42 youth leagues are among more than 900 youth football organizations nationwide that will incorporate Heads Up Football into its 2013 season.
San Diego native ERIC ALLEN will work alongside select area leagues throughout the 2013 season as an NFL Ambassador. Allen played 14 seasons at cornerback in the NFL with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders. He was named to six Pro Bowls and was All-Pro three times. He is member of the San Diego Hall of Champions.
Former Chargers working with coaches, parents and players to advance Heads Up Football as NFL Ambassadors include PATRICK SAPP (South Carolina) and AARON HAYDEN (Memphis, Tenn.) Participating league coaches will be trained in Heads Up Football techniques before leading their teams this season. All head coaches and assistant coaches will complete USA Football’s accredited Level 1 Coach Certification Course, which includes Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concussion recognition and response protocols; proper helmet and shoulder pad fitting; and Heads Up Tackling techniques, which aim to take the head out of the line of contact.
Parents can help ensure their youth football players are participating in a better and safer brand of football by visiting www.USAFootball.com, where they can enroll their leagues as Heads Up Football leagues and ensure that their coaches are certified.
Congratulations and good luck to our 2013 RB Pop Warner Head Football coaches!

In 2013, the RB Midgets will be defending their Palomar crown from last season. The 2012 season started off with a bang when RB overpowered the Murrieta Jethawks in what would be one of the team’s 5 shutouts.
As the year went on, with the high flying offense scoring an average of 28 points per game, RB sent a message to the league, putting them on notice; we are to be reckoned with. As the playoffs began, Temecula was first to find out the strength of this team. After that big win, RB hosted Vista in what would be a magnificent game fought down to the last minute, RB scoring to win in a great comeback. Then came Oceanside for the championship. This was a rematch of a hard fought mid October game, with the Broncos coming out on top 28-16. The championship would, however be a Bronco blowout with the team scoring 28 unanswered points in the first half.
Next came the regional semi finals with the Arizona Grand Snakes. The Snakes were the Arizona State Champs and proved to be too much for the Broncos. The Snakes went on to win the National championship in Florida two weeks later.
Before this championship season ended, RB received a challenge from the So. California Falcons. They were the LA. Region champs and also went down to defeat to the Snakes. As they were LA champs and we were San Diego champs, something had to give.
On a wet field in Wildomar, the issue got settled. A tough game going down to the last series, had the Broncos coming out on top 16-14. Southern California Champs! Oh what a year!
