football & cheerleading league in Miami
Dade county, please contact any of the
individuals on our Board.
The Greater Miami Pop
Warner League was chartered by Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc.,
a national non-profit organization, in 1972, as the governing
body of its eight associated member parks in Miami – Dade
County. Pop Warner is the
only national youth sports program which requires its
participants to maintain a level of academic achievement in
order to participate.
Greater Miami - S. Florida Pop Warner is
an all volunteer, 501c(3) non profit organization that provides
an organized tackle football and cheerleading program for over
3500 children, from 6 to 15 years of age, in Miami-Dade County.
The League now consists of 9 member associations, which provide
the facilities and equipment to run the programs at various
parks in the county. We estimate that the associations’ football
and cheer coaches alone volunteer in excess of 60,000 man hours
during the actual season. This of course does not include the
volunteer hours spent during the remainder of the year required
to organize and maintain the association or league operations.
The mission of GMSF is to enable local children to benefit from
participation in team sports and activities in a structured and
safe environment. Through our associations, Pop Warner programs
instill the fundamental values of teamwork, dedication and a
positive work ethic both on and off the field of play.
While the individual associations provide the coaches and
equipment necessary to field its teams, it is the function of
the League to, among other duties;
1. Provide the scheduling of all games and contract with the
local officials organization for qualified game officials and
2. Administer and enforce all National and Local rules
3. Organize and operate local and regional championship games
and cheer competitions
4. Oversee compliance of all participants with nationally
established scholastic standards
5. Honor all local student athletes with a minimum GPA of 96 at
an annual scholastic banquet and ensure their participation in
regional and national scholastic honors events.
6. Provide clinics for football and cheer coaches, as well as
scholastic coordinators and association administrators to
maintain the highest possible level of excellence throughout the
league and all its operations
