Pop Warner Football is an international program operated for the benefit of its youthful participants. since 1929, the program's philosophy has been: academics and athletics go hand-in-hand. At every level, Pop Warner Football seeks to develope well-rounded young men and women who learn not only the fundamentals of football or cheerleading, but also the importance of education, in an atmosphere conducive to developing sound mind, body and character-and having a good time along the way! The general objectives of Pop Warner Football are to inspire the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship, and physical fitness as reflected in the life of the late Glenn Scobie "Pop" Warner. Pop Warner strives to make the game "fun" for all boys and girls. Coaches must constantly keep in mind the ages of the participants. The program stresses learning lessons of value far beyond the playing or cheering days of the boys and girls involved, such as: self-discipline, teamwork, concentration, friendship, leadership and good sportsmanship. With such goals in mind, and by providing an opportunity to participate in an organized, supervised environment with emphasis on maximum safety and participation, Pop Warner Football offers young men and women a unique experience.
