Little Scholars

Pop Warner Little Scholars Program 
Serving America's Youth Through Safe Athletics and Academic Excellence for over 78 Years! 

Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc. (PWLS) is 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. 

Like such organizations as the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS), PWLS has academic guidelines and criteria that need to be met in order for a child to participate. 

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. No local team/squad may be eligible to participate in league championships and/or bowl games if it has not met the nationally published scholastic requirements.
