The mission of the Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc. program is to enable kids to benefit from participation in team sports and activities in a safe and structured environment. Through active participation, Pop Warner programs teach fundamental values, skills and knowledge that children will use throughout their lives. Pop Warner is a member of the NFL Youth Football program, and is the oldest national youth football and cheerleading organization in the world. Our program has no tryouts, and no cutting of rosters. We have mandatory rules of participation, so everyone plays. Each child competes with other kids of similar age and size, under a strict age and weight matrix that reduces the risk and reality of injury.
