Pop Warner is the only youth national sports program in the US where the athletes need to perform well in the classroom as well as on the field.  This helps develop in the kids a sense of responsibility and appreciation for school. 

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.

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.
