The event looked to give kids a chance to play football, even if financial issues stand in the way. From cleats, to registration fees, officials say they're main goal is to give every kid a chance to get into the game.
However those that head-up the league say playing football isn't the only piece to their motivational puzzle.
"Respect and 100% focus on academics. Football just gets them in the door, everything else we do is bigger than that," said Southwest Georgia Pop-Warner President, Daniel Cruz.
The event continues throughout the day and officials hope everyone will come out and support their young athletes.
