While the Vikings will initially use your submitted weight during registration, all players nationwide are weighed during "Certification Day" by Conference officials - in our case: officials from the Peninsula Pop Warner Conference weigh every player from all the teams from San Bruno to Santa Cruz... one at a time. Then each player is also weighed before each game... all this to make sure only players of equivalent weights are competing. If your player happens to fall on or slightly above the maximum weight range for their age, but is not eligible to move to the next level team because of age, they do assume the risk of working all of August and not 'making weight'. Please contact us with any questions.
