A Proud History
Pop Warner was founded in 1929, and continues to grow and serves as the only youth football, cheer leading & dance organization that requires its participants to maintain academic standards in order to participate. Pop Warner's commitment to academics is what separates the program from other youth sports around the world.
Morgan Hill Pop Warner (MHPW) is a non-profit organization interested in building leadership, teamwork, learning skills, and discipline in its young participants. Our goals are to inspire boys and girls to practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship, and physical fitness. The program stresses the learning of these important values that reach far beyond playing and cheering on game day. With such goals in mind, and by providing an opportunity to participate in an organized, supervised environment with emphasis on maximum safety and participation, MHPW offers young men and women a unique experience. We hope you'll get involved, if you haven't already!
Our objectives are to make the program available to as many interested youths in our area as possible and to provide a safe and positive playing environment for all participants while instilling life-long values of teamwork, dedication and a superior work ethic in the classroom as well as the playing field.
