Welcome to the Putnam Athletic League Site

Welcome to the Putnam Athletic League, Inc. Web site and thank you for taking the time to visit us. We are a non-profit organization that supports the youth of our communities. We have ten associations, which are all dedicated to administering Pop Warner Football and Cheerleading programs for boys and girls.

As always, our goal is to provide a drug-free environment for our youth while instilling teamwork, sportsmanship and most of all acceptable academic achievement.


2015 - Associations

Gainesville Pop Warner Association, Lake City Pop Warner Association, Palatka Pop Warner Association, Santa Fe Pop Warner Association, South Putnam Athletic Association, Union County Pop Warner Association, Bradford County Cowboys and West Putnam Pop Warner.


Our Mission

The mission of Putnam Athletic League Pop Warner program is the same as that of Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc. To enable young people to benefit from participation in team sports and activities in a safe and structured environment. Through this active participation, Pop Warner programs teach fundamental values, skills and knowledge that young people will use throughout their lives.

Pop Warner seeks to provide fun athletic learning opportunities for children, while emphasizing the importance of academic success.  Specifically, Pop Warner seeks to familiarize players and spirit participants with the fundamentals of football, cheerleading and dance. Pop Warner strives to inspire youth, regardless of race, creed or national origin, to practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship and physical fitness as reflected in the life of the late Glenn Scobie “Pop” Warner.

2014 Southeast Region Female Coach of the Year - Beverly Perry

Putnam is pleased to announce that earlier this year, our very own LCDC and Gainesville Gator Coach Beverly Perry was named the Southeast Region's 2014 Female Coach of the Year.  Mrs. Beverly has been an amazing asset to the Putnam Program for the past 26+ years, from Coach to Cheer Coordinator - she exemplifies leadership qualities of hard work, honesty, integrity, compassion, and selflessness.  Mrs. Beverly can be seen on the sidelines cheering on every Putnam Squad, she offers a helping hand to all coaches across the organization, and spends hours behind the scenes making Putnam shine across the region. 

In the 2014 season,  Mrs. Beverly's Midget team was ranked #1 at the National Level.  However, this award is not about "winning" instead it is about being a Mentor.  "Beverly may be one of the most genuine, thoughtful, and considerate women I have the pleasure of knowing. Every one of these amazing personality traits carry over to not only how she coaches, but to how she guides the young women she works with."  

Please join us in congratulating Mrs. Beverly Perry for being recognized for this high honor.  We are very proud of you here at Putnam.
