Congratulations to the top Cheer and Football scholars from NIPWLS!!!

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. PWLS has academic guidelines and criteria that need to be met in order for a child to participate.

Scholastic Fitness: The National Policy

Proof of satisfactory progress in school is required. A 2.0/70% or equivalent shall be the minimum grade point average acceptable to participate.

What if I don't have a 2.0/70% Grade Point average?

We understand that not all student-athletes are able to meet our scholastic requirements. If a child does not meet the requirements of scholastic fitness, he/she may fill out and submit a Scholastic Eligibility Form which is to be signed by a school administrator 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 can maintain a minimum standard and understand the value of academics in conjunction with athletics.  

Pop Warner 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 (town) level and up through each of the eight Pop Warner regions to the national level. Northern Indiana Pop Warner had over 200 kids reach Academic All-American Status for the 2008 season.

The Pop Warner All-American Program requires a minimum 96% grade point average to apply for All-American status. After the applications have been processed at the league level, they are forwarded on to the regional level for consideration for the 1st team, 2nd team, or honorable mention scholars. Those who are selected for the regional 1st team honors are then forwarded to the national office for consideration for National Academic All-American status.
