Alaska South Central Pop Warner


About Us -


ASCPW uses the official rule book of Pop Warner Little Scholars which has strict rules regarding safety of the players. All players are required to have 10 hours of conditioning without gear and 10 hours of practice with full gar before participating in a game. Weigh-ins are conducted before each game to ensure a level playing field and that all required paperwork is in place. The Mandatory Play Rule (MPR) is strictly followed to ensure that all players have the opportunity to participate in the game. All teams in the league are guaranteed 8 official games in the regular season not counting play-offs.

ASCPW stresses the importance of scholastic achievement, requiring a 2.0 to participate in games. We combine sports and scholastics for a positive experience. ASCPW recognizes scholastic achievement an annual Sean McAlpine Scholastic and Volunteer Banquet.  In addition, the National Pop Warner organization recognizes these same achievements with their National scholastic awards banquet.  Athletes with less than a 2.0 may participate but are required to submit progress reports once school is in session. For more information on scholastics – see the Scholastics tab.
