Pop Warner football returns to Molokai

The Molokai Pop Warner Association kicks off its season on Sept. 27, the first time since the 1960s that the island will have an organized youth football league.

Three Pee Wee division teams have been formed, according to Sione Olevao, a league coordinator. Games will be held at 9 a.m. on Sundays at Kaunakakai Regional Park.

Olevao cites the cost of operation and travel as reasons for the previous lack of football at either the youth or high school level on Molokai. The Maui Pop Warner League has donated start-up money and the Molokai league has also received grants.

The league is still accepting donations. For information, contact Olevao at 553-3675.
