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. 

The National Pop Warner Scholastic Policy

  • Proof of satisfactory progress in school is required. (Full previous year report card must be submitted before permitted to practice) 
  • A 2.0/70% or the equivalent shall be the minimum grade point average acceptable to participate
