A Word from Our President

It is with great pleasure and extreme excitement that I formally introduce myself to each and every one of you.  I am Eddie Fletcher Sr. the President of the North Texas Pop Warner (NTXPW).


 

I started with Pop Warner in 1983 as a President and Coach of the then Pop Warner Mustangs. I later became a Board Member and Coach for the Pleasant Grove Broncos before accepting the role as Athletic Director and Coach for the St. Philip Saints. Pop Warner has been a lifestyle a legacy that I have passed on to my daughter as she participated throughout the years as a cheerleader. I transitioned and was voted in as the League’s CFO in 2012 and stayed in that position until becoming the President in January 2016. Along with the Executive Board and the League Management Team we work diligently to handle the daily operations for North Texas Pop Warner.


 

While serving in this leadership capacity is such a great honor to me, I look forward to working with the wonderful volunteers of NTXPW year after year in becoming the best youth-serving sports development program in the nation.


 

Over 50 years ago NTXPW was organized to give OUR youth an opportunity to develop themselves athletically, academically, and socially.   In order to be successful year after year, we strive collaboratively together as a TEAM to ensure that EVERY youth in our organization becomes not only great athletes, but also great scholars and leaders. 


 

I am personally committed to ensuring that NTXPW reflects an organization that is both kid/youth-centered and inviting/open to parental input and involvement.  Given the competiveness of youth sports today and the vast number of programs available to youth to choose from, it is extremely important that we continue to explore new ways and best practices that will help us “separate ourselves” from all others and become the kind of organization that both youth and parents are attracted to and feel proud to be a part of.


 

As my favorite scripture goes and I stand by it today: “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he grows old he will not depart from it”. Proverbs 22:6
