Congratulations to our All American Scholars!

Every year when our football players and cheerleaders register for the season, they are required to submit their report cards.  Pop Warner is the ONLY youth sports organization in the nation that required their participants to work hard both on and off the field.  Everyone must meet minimum academic standards in order to play, we are proud to announce that Poway Pop Warner is the only association in the entire West Coast Conference where EVERY player and cheerleader met that academic achievement!
The players shown above are those players and cheerleaders are those that have reached the status of All American Scholars. This is a HUGE deal!  These kids have achieved a 96% or better in their grades.

Congratulations to our All American Scholars.  Job well done!!!

Pop Warner Little Scholars

Pop Warner believes that academics come first, and encourages participants to do well in school, to build confidence on and off the field

To particpate, players need to maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0/70% or a C average, which is verified by the year end report card.
Some may not have a 2.0/70% GPA to meet the requirements of scholastic fitness. If so, a Scholastic Eligibility Form, which is to be signed by a school administrator, may be completed,  stating that the child will benefit from participating in the Pop Warner Program.  It is the discretion of the school administrator as to whether or not the student would benefit from participating in Pop Warner. This form allows us to monitor the progress of the child so that they maintain a minimum standard and understand the value of academics in conjunction with athletics.


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 PWLS 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
