Cheerleading was officially recognized in the 1970's, but has been a part of the Pop Warner program for several decades. The first ever National Cheerleading competition was held in DeKalb county, GA. Today, more than 180,000 children are participating in Pop Warner cheerleading and dance around the world.
Participation in the Pop Warner Spirit program provides kids an opportunity to perform in an organized, supervised, safety oriented environment. Pop Warner programs emphasize fun for all and encourage the development of qualities important long after Pop Warner days are gone.

BENEFITS OF POP WARNER

Each year Pop Warner continues to expand its efforts in team and activity participation, as well as visibility and outreach in the community. The participants in the Pop Warner program are unique as opposed to those of other programs. While they are taught about the values of competition, they are also maintaining their grades at a satisfactory level in order to attain the ultimate prize of being named a Pop Warner National Champion.
