Caz Pop Warner Responds to the Arrest of a Former Board Member for Fraud

It was recently discovered that one of our former Board Members has committed fraud against Cazenovia Pop Warner Association. We deeply regret that such a situation was able to take place, and we want to assure the community that we have instituted new measures to prohibit this from happening again. 

Cazenovia Pop Warner Association has been fully cooperating with authorities, and we will continue to work with authorities to obtain the restitution of funds. Throughout the investigative process, we were able to contain the situation and determine that the former Board Member acted alone. 

Cazenovia Pop Warner Association is a non-profit organization with a mission to provide local kids with an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of football and cheerleading in a safe, fun, energetic environment. We take what happened very seriously, but want to stress that it will in no way compromise our ability to conduct business or provide our usual sports programs. We strongly believe that the actions of one should not negatively impact our players, their families, our fans, nor our community.
