About Main Image

Since 1993 SOAA has run a youth Football and Cheerleading program with the South Orange Bears Football & Cheerleading Teams. The South Orange Bears are proud to be fostered, under the nationally acclaimed organization known as Pop Warner. Pop Warner is the only national youth sports organization in America that requires its participants to perform adequately in the classroom before permitting them to play. Locally, we participate under the South Division of Mid Florida Pop Warner league.
