We’re Pop Warner Little Scholars, and 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 scholarship, have shaped the lives of millions of Americans who went on to be successful not just in football, but in all walks of life.


Pop Warner is not just football. Our Cheerleading/Spirit teams (over 1,500 cheer families per league) generate excitement on the sidelines at football games throughout the season and participate in regional competitions that attract 40,000+ passionate fans who love to shop. The season culminates in the national championships/Pop Warner Super Bowl event held at Disney World, with 9,000 Cheer & Dance participants and their families.





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.
