Since 1929, the Pop Warner philosophy has been that athletics and scholastics go hand in hand. Pop Warner programs seek to develop well-rounded young men and women who learn not only the fundamentals of football, cheerleading, and dance but also the importance of education in an atmosphere conducive to developing sound character while having a good time.
