Why Choose Pop Warner Spirit?

Thousands of youth participate in Pop Warner cheerleading and dance teams around the United States. Teams participate on the sidelines at football games for home and away games. Teams may also cheer at the Pop Warner Super Bowl. In addition to game day, teams participate in qualifying spirit events (League and Region) and Pop Warner National Championship. The Pop Warner National Cheer and Dance Championships are held in December at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Kissimmee, Florida.
