Program and Registration Information

The PPO Bengals is proud to offer what is widely regarded as the best tackle football program in South Florida.  Our program consists of conditioning training for the month of May, and practices and games beginning in July that continue through the middle of November. The flyer posted below gives more information with what is included with registration, and includes many items that only PPO provides to players making our program stand out from all the rest.

We will form 9 teams:  5U Super Pee Wees (for more info scroll down to the *,  6U Mighty Mites, 7U, 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, and 13U.     Age cutoff dates are May 1st for Mighty Mites through 12U, and Jan 1st for 13U (only).

We will accept children born between:

01/02/2009 through 07/31/2019  (In the the 2023season).

Participants will require a physical before the first game.

PPO Bengals has shifted to a FULLY online registration process.  ALL REGISTRATION AND PAYMENTS MUST BE MADE ONLINE USING THIS WEBSITE.  Pembroke Pines Optimist Club NO LONGER accepts cash or registration forms submitted on paper.  Scroll down for detailed information.

In order to get the in-city rate, parents will need to upload proof of residency at the time of registration

Although we strive to keep every young athlete who registers for our program, coaches may need to cut some players from their teams. Reasons for cuts include but are not limited to their skill/athleticism level, behavior, and/or if the number of kids registered for the team exceeds the roster limit set by the AYFL.   Registering for our program does not guarantee your player will not be cut at a later time.

All cut participants will receive a refund less the stated tryout/dropped player fee of $40.  See the refund policy below for further information


* U5/Super Pee Wee information:    Children born between 5/1/18 through 7/31/19 will only be offered to register for U5/Super Pee Wee.  This is a non AYFL team, and does have a reduced in-city cost of $225 (not including web site processing fees, and any out of city fees if applicable).  Super Pee Wees play in a different inter-city U5 league.   Children born 8/1/17 - 4/30/18 will have the option to register for U5 Super Pee Wee OR U6 Mighty Mites. 


The base registration fee is $295 (plus a small processing fee charged by the website).    Scroll down this page to the flier to see what is included.   For Super Pee Wee 5U pricing, see the section above.

Out of City residents are subject to an additional fee of $95 imposed by the City of Pembroke Pines.

The website  accepts  all major credit cards as well as checks (for checks you will enter the routing number and account number online at checkout).

The site will also accept Visa or MasterCard gift cards (with a sufficient balance to cover).  Parents who normally prefer to use cash to pay for registrations may wish to purchase a gift card at any local merchant, and then use that card for registration on our site.



Refunds will only be issued if requested prior to July 9th, and will be subject to a $40 dropped player/training fee.   All refunds will be made online to the same source of payment as originally used when registering.   It is possible that coaches will cut some players off the team.  If this happens you will be refunded what you paid LESS the $40 dropped player/tryout fee. 


  • Do not bring your child to practice if he has any symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc..), has been exposed to a known or suspected case.
  • Additional stipulations may be added at the direction of PPO, AYFL, City of Pembroke Pines, or other entities.  By registering parents agree to follow all COVID safety protocols for the duration of the season..
