Pop Warner Supports Education

 What sets Pop Warner apart is it's dedication to education. All participants must maintain satisfactory grades in order to participate.  A combination of dedication, hard work, and excellence in education helps participants reach the ultimate prize of being named a Pop Warner National Champion.

Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc. (PWLS) is what sets our organization apart from everyone else as the only national youth sports organization in America that requires its participants to perform adequately in the classroom before permitting them to play.

We believe that the standards we have set give these children a sense of responsibility and an appreciation for academics and athletics that will help them develop later on in life.

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

Our Scholastic Fitness National Policy requires proof of satisfactory progress in school. 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.)

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.  Contact our Scholastics Director for more details. 

Disclaimer: This rule as it relates to scholastic grades may not be made more stringent by any team, association, or league, as other rules may be. No local team/squad may be allowed to participate in Regional/National sponsored championships or bowl games if it has not met the nationally published scholastic requirements.

All American Scholar

Pop Warner All-American Scholar

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.

All-American Scholars are the participants who are eligible for academic scholarships at the National Level. As the National Pop Warner Scholarship Fund grows we are hoping to offer more scholarships to all of our participant’s grade levels.
