About Cleveland Pop Warner Association
Cleveland Pop Warner Association, Inc. is a corporation that was founded in 1996 for the purpose of developing, fostering, and generating a local Pop Warner Football and Cheerleading program. We are a subordinate member of Pop Warner Little Scholars, and are subject to the rules and regulations set forth by PWLS.
We are part of the Mid-South Region, a geographical division put in place by PWLS. Within our Region, there are several Leagues. Our League is the Consolidated Football Federation, or CFF. Just over a dozen Associations make up the CFF. These are the teams our children meet in games.
Our organization is run entirely by volunteers. All the members of the Board of Directors are volunteers, and are not compensated for the hundreds of hours they work throughout the year to keep this program going. All our coaches and seasonal staff are also volunteers who put in many hours on and off the practice fields each season.
The program is funded through registration fees, game admission fees, sponsors, and fundraisers. All funds are put back into the program to pay expenses and make improvements. Some of the expenses we incur each year include: repair and/or replacement of equipment and uniforms, field usage fees, insurance, membership dues, background checks for staff, merchandise for resale, referees, end-of-year participant trophies, hosting the annual Flag Bowl, and other miscellaneous administrative expenses.
Each year we strive to improve and nurture this program, thus ensuring its continued existence and availability for the community. We appreciate the support and enthusiasm of all our volunteers, sponsors, and parents.
