Serving the Bethel and Lake Wylie communities
• We will be accepting registrations for football and cheerleading at the Crowders Creek Carnival 10 a.m.-2 p.m. April 25 at the LWAA tent. This will be for new and returning football players and cheerleaders. Registration forms are available online at lwsports.org. Uniforms and equipment will be on display and preseason calendars will be given out. There is no draft in Pop Warner, so all teams will be assigned on a firs-come basis. For more information, e-mail Kim Pennington at firstname.lastname@example.org. More sign up dates will follow.
