This week’s group spotlight selection has to be the entire Pop Warner organization. Besides being one of Weplay’s founding partners, Pop Warner has given a 110 percent to better the online sports experiences for every member of our youth sports community.
Pop Warner leaders were the early group organizers, community builders and ambassadors for football, cheerleading and dance on Weplay. The nearly 1400 leagues and groups linked to the Pop Warner organization are outstanding. They’ve truly built a nationwide community that is passionate about sharing memories, experiences and media.
Pop Warner is also celebrating youth sports competition at their annual National Championship Super Bowl. The top youth cheer, dance and football teams from across the nation are competiting at Disney’s Wide World of Sports in Florida. If you’ve visited the Pop Warner page on Weplay, you’ve been getting all of Scott Adams’ updates live from the event.
The Super Bowl kicked off on Saturday December 5th and ends this Saturday December 12th. Many of our own Weplay teams and squads are competing in this year’s championship. It is always exciting to see some of our own chasing after their dreams.
Here's a recap of how our Weplay Pop Warner Football teams have done so far:
