Pop Warner Little Panthers Teams Registering Now!

Be sure to be part of the best youth Football in and around the Charlotte area!

Who are we? Pop Warner Little Panthers is now the largest Pop Warner league in the Mid-South region, and one of the fastest growing of all Pop Warner leagues. With the arrival of the Carolina Panthers, the Mecklenburg Optimist Club (with the backing of Pop Warner National) went to NFL Properties and sought permission to use the Panthers name. NFL Properties approved this request, and the name of the league was changed to the Pop Warner Little Panthers. Since 1994, the number of teams in Mecklenburg County has grown from 23 teams to 104 teams for the 2014 season.

It has always been the goal of the Mecklenburg Optimist Club to have a program which complies with the rules of National Pop Warner Football, and which provides a level playing field for children wanting to participate in contact football. We continue to believe that the age and weight schematic is the cornerstone of making football safe to play at a young age. Just as important, it has always been the goal of this program that the children who participate have a great experience.
