Pop Warner football has been around since the inception of the league in 1929 by founder Joseph J. Tomlin as a four-team conference in Northeast Philadelphia. Since then, participation has steadily increased to today’s record numbers. Over 250,000 youths participated in Pop Warner-sanctioned football programs in 2010, and those numbers are continuing to grow.

Pop Warner exists to use football to develop strong, smart, responsible, healthy young people. We give them experiences that build their appreciation for and understanding of leadership, teamwork, and discipline.
