Pop Warner Scholastics Overview
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 National Federation of High Schools (NFHS), PWLS has academic guidelines and criteria that need to be met in order for a child to participate.
All American Scholar Program
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.
In 2013 over 425,000 kids participated in Pop Warner. As our numbers once again reached record levels, a record numbers of All-American Scholar applications were once again submitted to us…more than 9,700 applications!
The Pop Warner All-American Program requires a minimum 96% grade point average to apply. 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.
Your qualification is based on your participation in the Jacksonville Pop Warner Program, submission of documentation verifying an overall academic average of 96% or higher during the preceding school year, and your involvement in community based activities beyond the scope of Pop Warner.
Congratulations to Nathan Charles, Cristina Evans and Sophia Edwards
