We’re Pop Warner! As the leading youth football and cheer & dance organization, chances are you, or someone you admire, participated in one of our programs while growing up.

The lessons learned in Pop Warner – discipline, respect, leadership and academics – have shaped the lives of millions of Americans for success in all walks of life.

Mission Focused

The mission of Pop Warner Little Scholars is to enable young people to benefit from participation in team sports and activities in a structured environment. Through this active participation, Pop Warner programs teach fundamental values, skills and knowledge that young people will use throughout their lives. In addition, Pop Warner seeks to provide fun athletic learning opportunities for children, while emphasizing the importance of academic success.

Concerned about concussions and injuries? We are too.

Pop Warner is on a mission to make the game of football safer, and we rely on the support of sponsors to make this happen. We’ve already seen an 87% reduction in injuries by implementing changes and embracing the principles of USA Football’s Heads Up Football℠ and ensuring that all of our coaches are trained and certified in safety protocols. We will continue to make changes to protect our scholar athletes. Tomorrow’s college and NFL stars are on a Pop Warner field today, learning a safer way to play America’s favorite sport.
