2014 Football Season Information

Thank you to all the players and cheerleaders who participated in our organization this past season. Also, a big thank you to the parents who volunteered their time and energy to help the program. We are a 100% volunteer organization, so your help is a necessity in order to keep our youth active and involved in football and cheerleading.

For 2013, we will be going back to a full Pop Warner organization for all ages and programs. We expect to have the following Pop Warner teams and age brackets.

Team Age Weight
Instructional 5 & 6 65 lbs
Tiny Mite 6 & 7 70 lbs
Junior Mitey Mite 7 & 8 80 lbs
Mitey Mite 8 & 9 90 lbs
Junior Pee Wee 8 to 10
11 (O/L)
105 lbs
85lbs
Pee Wee 9 to 11
12 (O/L)
120 lbs
100 lbs
Junior Midget 10 to 12
13 (O/L)
145 lbs
120 lbs

We will have an in-house instructional tackle program for any 5 year olds wanting to participate. In addition, if the parents of a 6 year old want to leave their player on an instructional team, they will have that option as long as the player weighs less than 65 lbs.

We have registration information posted on our website here: http://northamptonindians.org/registration/. This page will be kept up to date with the latest registration information (including any in-person registration sessions and soon our new online registration system).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ).

To make sure everything is clear and everyone knows what they are signing the players up for, we put together some questions and answers.

Who are the coaches?

We are still working to decide on coaching positions. We will update this page soon with the coach names.

What is the date cutoff for birthdays?

The age of the player on July 31 determines the age of the player. Example: Tommy turns 10 this coming November, his playing age is 9. John turns 8 this June, his playing age is 8.

What league do we play in?

The Northampton Indians are a member of the Bux-Mont league. The league consists of other "Associations" similar to the Northampton Indians. The associations are located in Bucks and Montgomery counties. You can see a list of the Associations here: http://bux-mont.com/associations.html.

What do the weights mean?

The weight ranges we have listed are for the player alone (no equipment). Before each game, all players are weighed in. They are given a 7lb allowance for their equipment (without helmets). Example: Tommy is on the Mitey Mite team (90lbs). In order to play in the first game, he must weigh in at 97lbs or less in his full gear except helmet. The players are allowed an extra 1lb per week as the season goes along.

What does "Older / Lighter" mean?

Some teams are allowed to have players 1 year older than the target age, but they must weigh less than the other players (usually about 20lbs less). See the description below for each team to see if a player can be "older / lighter".

What is the 5 & 6 year old instructional team?

This is a low pressure program targeted at young kids who want to play football. The purpose is to introduce them to tackle football and get them ready to play in the Pop Warner age/weight groups. This team may not have a set game schedule. Games will be set up by the coaches (similar to the past few seasons).

What is the Tiny Mite team?

The Tiny Mites are a Pop Warner instructional team. The team is targeted at 7 year olds that weight 70 lbs maximum (there are no "older / lighter" allowances). The team consists of a minimum of 16 players to a maximum of 22 players. Each player is a starter on offense or defense for the entire game. The offense and defensive schemes are limited to help kids/coaches focus on the fundamentals of tackle football, while still playing in real "game situations". There are no playoffs in age/weight group.

What is the Junior Mitey Mite team?

The Junior Mitey Mites are a "non-competitive" Pop Warner team. The team is targeted at 8 year olds that weigh 80 lbs maximum (there are no "older / lighter" allowances). The team consists of a minimum of 16 players to a maximum of 35 players. Each player will get a minimum of 4-6 plays per half, depending upon the size of the team:

  • 16-25 players - minimum of 6 plays per half
  • 26-30 players - minimum of 5 plays per half
  • 31-35 players - minimum of 4 plays per half

The offensive and defensive schemes are less limited for this team to allow kids to build on the fundamentals learned earlier. There are no playoffs in this age/weight group.

What is the Mitey Mite team?

The Mitey Mites are a "non-competitive" Pop Warner team. The team is targeted at 9 year olds that weigh a max of 90 lbs (there are no "older / lighter" allowances).

The offensive and defensive schemes are pretty much unlimited, and they play serious football. There are different "divisions" in the league, some more competitive than others. There are no "try-outs" for the team, but the coaches do assign players to teams based on skill evaluations and experience level. Each team is assigned to a division by the league.

2013 Jr Pee Wee Eastern Region Champs!

Northampton Indians football program has a story to tell.

This past summer, 18 boys joined a team managed by Head Coach Jim Trampe. One only needed to attend the practices to see what talent each boy brought to this team. Even watching their practices was an exciting experience! Their energy, focus and enthusiasm is enviable. They have developed not only a true love for the game of football, but a unique bond and friendship with their teammates. They were amazing to watch all season long.

Coach Trampe brought tremendous coaching experience with him to this team. In fact, the season before, he coached many of the same boys to an undefeated season. Surely, this had to be a winning combination…and it was. Coach Trampe had Coach Ed Trampe as his defensive coordinator, and Coaches Kennedy,Perkins, Patterson, and Tommy Trampe as assistant coaches to help bring this team to the Pop Warner Championship game in Orlando, Florida!!! Now, we knew they were a talented bunch. But, this was a remarkable accomplishment given how many teams are out their competing for this very spot. This team is one of only 8 in the U.S. who have earned this spot to go and compete for this national title. We are grateful to the coaches and the boys for a very fun season. Luckily, their season goes on...

Post Season:

  • November 2nd-BUX-MONT CHAMPIONSHIP GAME – The Indians begin their post season winning streak in Quakertown against a tough competitor Marsh Creek Eagles and clinched the title with a score of 21 to 20.
  • November 9th - 1st Round of Eastern Region Playoffs – The Indians win handily over a very tough competitor, the North Philly Hurricanes with a final score of 34 – 20.
  • November 16thQuarterfinal Round of Eastern Region Playoffs – The Indians win over Quakertown with a final score of 31 – 0. (Pennsylvania State Jr. Pee Wee Champions!!!)
  • November 23rd - Semifinal Round of Eastern Region Playoffs – The Indians once again faced a formidable opponent, Watkins Hornets (from Washington D.C.) and left CB West HS with a win and a very respectable score of 20 – 12.
  • November 29thEASTERN REGION CHAMPIONSHIP GAME – Malcolm X Shabazz HS (Newark, NJ) – The Indians go with the goal of clinching the Eastern Regional Championship, and they did just that with a final score of 21 to 6 over the undefeated NJ State Champions, the Greater Freehold Giants.

The Northampton Indians are the 2013 Pop Warner Eastern Region Champs!

With this last win, the team is the Junior Pee Wee Winner and only representative from PA, NY, NJ, DE, MD and Washington D.C.!!!

"We are going to Disney World to play in the Pop Warner Super Bowl at ESPN’s World Wide of Sports Complex!!!” – yes this is what the boys are so excitedly saying.

But, we need your help and support of the boys as this is a costly trip for all!

Please support our boys by donating to their trip!!! You can donate by check (contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by using our PayPal donation page.
