Fallbrook Pop Warner Little Scholars is committed to furthering our children’s character development as well as their sense of teamwork and sportsmanship with particular emphasis on academic growth, building confidence and pride.   Bottom line....It's All About The Kids!


Pop Warner Little Scholars

Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc. is the only national youth sports organization in America that requires its participants to perform adequately in the classroom before permitting them to play. Click here for 2017 Scholar Rules.


Like such organizations as the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and National Federation of High Schools (NFHS), Pop Warner Little Scholars has academic guidelines and criteria that need to be met in order for a child to participate.


Proof of satisfactory progress in school is required. A 2.0/70% or the equivalent shall be the minimum grade point average acceptable to participate. In cases of doubt, conflict of opinion, or if a valid report card is not submitted, the nationally published scholastic eligibility form shall be used and deemed final.

Homeschooled athletes can fill out this 2017 Homeschool form

What if I Don't Have a 2.0/70% Grade Point Average?

We understand that not all student-athletes are able to meet our scholastic requirements. If a child does not meet the requirements of scholastic fitness, he/she may fill out and submit a Scholastic Eligibility Form


This form is to be completed by those participants in the Pop Warner program that have not met the National Scholastic Requirement of 70 percent and/or 2.0 Grade Point Average (GPA) at the time of certification. This form must be accompanied by a progressing progress report or report card to be eligible for play after the October 18, 2019 deadline. That report must be dated between September 13, 2019 and October 18, 2019. If no progress report or report card is given in this window, the player shall be found ineligible for the rest of the season.

  • Copy of First Semester Report Card
  • Copy of Final Official Report card for 2019-2020 School Year

All-American Scholar Program

Each year, the most academically accomplished Pop Warner kids compete for Academic All-American status. This process begins at the association level and up through each of the eight Pop Warner regions to the national level.


The Pop Warner Little Scholars All-American Program requires a minimum 96% grade point average to apply for All-American status. After the applications have been processed, Pop Warner determines National First Team All-Americans (35 football, 35 cheer per grade), National Second Team All-Americans and National Honorable Mention Scholars.


All-American Selection Process:

A final score is calculated for each student that consists of up to 100 points (85%) for the student's grades for the prior school year, along with up to 18 points (15%) awarded for the attached Addendum sheet of activities and achievements.


Once the scores have been calculated, First Team All-Americans are selected. The top 35 football players and 35 cheerleaders per grade (plus ties) are selected as National First Team All-Americans.


Second Team All-Americans are then determined by Pop Warner based upon the number of applications that were submitted for that year. Last year's total was approximately 3,800 Second Team All-Americans


What Happens Next?

Pop Warner will announce its annual Scholar All-Americans each year by April 1st. Each scholar will receive an informational packet in the mail by the end of April that includes:


  • Congratulatory letter from Pop Warner indicating their scholastic accomplishment.
  • Certificate of achievement for National All-Americans.

Little Scholars

Since 1929, the Pop Warner Programs Philosophy has been that athletics and scholastics go hand in hand. At every level, Pop Warner programs seek to develop well-rounded young men and women who learn not only the fundamentals of football, cheer-leading, but also the importance of education in an atmosphere conducive to developing sound character while having a good time. Palomar Pop Warner is proud to be a charter member of Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc. and joins in this philosophy

Congratulations to all our Fallbrook Pop Warner Little Scholars!
