Who are the Hampton Hawkeyes?
Hampton Hawkeyes Pop Warner Association (HHPWA) is an association of the Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc., a non-profit organization that provides youth football, cheer, and dance programs for participants in 42 states and several countries around the world. We inspire youth to practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship, and physical fitness, as well as giving back to the community. The Hampton Hawkeyes Pop Warner Association started at the ground level in 2010 in an effort to bring national recognition for the athletic and academic achievements of the youth of the Virginia Peninsula.
Our coaches and staff are volunteers with years of experience working with children in the community. All staff must pass a background check prior to acceptance to the HHPWA team.
Pop Warner Benefits
Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc. is the only national youth sports organization in America that requires its participants to perform adequately in the classroom before permitting them to play and rewards them for outstanding performance in the classroom. Through our Nutrition program we will ensure that all student athletes compete with athletes of similar age and size. Pop Warner is the ONLY youth football program (local, regional and national) that sets and enforces a strict age and weight matrix that reduces the risk and reality of injuries.
The National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) estimates that between 60 and 70 percent of all NFL players began their careers playing Pop Warner Football. Pop Warner seeks to provide fun athletic learning opportunities for children, while emphasizing the importance of academic success.
