Welcome to South Valley Football & Cheer - Home of the Grizzlies!

South Valley Pop Warner is a youth organization in South San Jose that is comprised of both youth football players and youth spirit leaders and is affiliated with Pop Warner Little Scholars. We offer a competitive environment that strives to inspire youth to practice the ideals of sportsmanship and physical fitness, as reflected in the life of the late Glenn Scobie "Pop" Warner. Scholastics is also a very important part of our program, with participants expected to maintain a "C" average or higher in school.

Since 1978, South Valley Pop Warner has made an effort to make the game "fun" for all boys and girls. Our program stresses learning lessons of value far beyond participation, such as: self-discipline, teamwork, concentration, friendship, leadership, and good sportsmanship. Join us to feel the South Valley Grizzly Pride and celebrate our 39th Year!

South Valley has their practices & home games at GUNDERSON HIGH SCHOOL in San Jose

We are proud to continue our long standing relationship with Gunderson and honored to be able to build GRIZZLY pride in our youth, as we prepare them for the next level of play. Together we continue to raise the bar of San Jose Football!

Grizzly Family,

We have a celebrity amongst us…. Our very own “Marlo” has won the NFL Play60 Super Kid contest for 2015! Marlo is among the thousands of young football fans who entered to win the NFL Play 60 Super Bowl contest with the hope of becoming the league’s Play 60 Super Kid. The prize is a 7-day adventure to Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. As the Super Kid, Marlo will also get to run the game ball out before the Super Bowl kickoff and she is getting a role of a lifetime as “GMA”’s special Super Bowl correspondent.


Marlo joined the Pop Warner South Valley Grizzlies in 2013 and has played for 3 years. She is as tough as the next player and always puts forth 100% effort. Marlo is a quick learner and spends extra time after practices to enhance her wide receiver skills. She is a scholar athlete and holds a 3.5 GPA. Recently I learned that she has a goal to become an NFL coach - and not just a coach but the Head Coach. In her spare time, Marlo likes to play basketball, listen to music and play Madden NFL. She likes to unwind after school by watching segments of Ellen on YouTube or catching an episode of Criminal Minds. Marlo is well on her way to being a success at whatever she chooses to do in her life. Congratulations Marlo!
