The Atlanta Metro Pop Warner Football & Cheer League seeks to provide our communities’ youth the opportunity to participate in a football and cheer & dance program that fosters education, social interaction, life skills development, healthy self-esteem, self-love and self-respect.
We are a TEAM of positive, like-minded individuals who believe we have a specific obligation to fully equip the youth in our community and abroad with life tools necessary to become independent, balanced children who are able to exercise good judgment, practice responsible habits, and live independent lives as positive contributing members of both family and community; whether through player/cheer participation, internships, or volunteer service.
The general objectives of Pop Warner are to inspire youth regardless of race, creed, religion or national origin, to practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship, and physical fitness. Pop Warner strives to make the game fun for all participants. The program stresses learning lessons of value beyond playing or cheering, such as: self-discipline, teamwork, concentration, friendship, leadership, and good sportsmanship. With such goals in mind, and providing an opportunity to participate in an organized, supervised environment with emphasis on maximum safety and participation, Pop Warner hopes to provide a memorable experience for all participants.
AMPW season runs from August through late November. Registration typically begins in March. Programs offered are football and cheer/dance for participants ages 5 -15 years old.
AMPW serves the following counties: Butts, Clayton, Cobb, Dekalb, Fulton (South), Gwinnett, Henry, and Spaulding.
