The DPR Pop Warner Football League has one division,  which competes for the opportunity to represent the District in the regional playoffs in November, and the chance to compete in the National Pop Warner Football Super Bowl held every December.

DPR Pop Warner Football features six Pop Warner Football age/weight divisions of play, which are listed below. For more information or to register, please visit a DPR center or contact the DPR Pop Warner Football League at DPRPopWarner@dc.gov.

Pop Warner was founded in 1929, continues to grow and serves as the only youth football, cheerleading & dance organization that requires its participants to maintain academic standards in order to participate.

Each year Pop Warner continues to expand its efforts in team and activity participation, as well as visibility and outreach in the community.

Since 1929, the Pop Warner Programs Philosophy has been that athletics and scholastics go hand in hand. At every level, Pop Warner programs seek to develop well-rounded young men and women who learn not only the fundamentals of football, cheerleading, and dance but also the importance of education in an atmosphere conducive to developing sound character while having a good time.
