Rebel Athletic to be the new Official Cheer and Dance Uniform Supplier of Pop Warner
DALLAS, TX -Pop Warner Little Scholars, Inc., the original and largest youth sports organization in America (with over 325,000 young athletes and 40,000 volunteers and coaches participating annually) has chosen Rebel Athletic to be the new Official Cheer and Dance Uniform Supplier of Pop Warner through 2022.
In this worldwide exclusive partnership, Rebel Athletic will outfit the entire Pop Warner Cheer and Dance organization – including athletes, coaches, parents and fans – with a collection of modern cheerleading uniforms and cheerleading lifestyle apparel. Rebel Athletic will also develop a special line of “pink” apparel and accessories in support of the Pop Warner Pink Games held annually in October for breast cancer awareness.
With goals to be a true 360 degree partner to the longstanding organization, Rebel Athletic will participate in the 8 regional Championships, the National Cheer and Dance Championship at the ESPN Wide World of Sports at Disney and the Superbowl. Rebel will also make annual donations to the Pop Warner Scholarship Fund and Grant Program and will work with Pop Warner to launch a variety of new young-athlete development and leadership initiatives including summer leadership workshops, essay writing contests for scholarships, and the adoption of the Rebel Against Bullying initiative within the Pop Warner community.
“We are thrilled to enter into a new partnership with Pop Warner Little Scholars, one that marks a new era for both Rebel Athletic and Pop Warner, and that will allow both companies to excel at what they do best in the youth cheerleading community. Rebel’s focus will be on providing a “#RebelLevel” experience to all those we touch in the Pop Warner organization – from cheerleaders to coaches, parents to spectators – across all of PWLS’ activities in the eight regions. Rebel’s goal is always to exceed customer expectations at every level – across the spectrum of unbeatable service, design customization, product choice, quality and amazing value. As a company that champions the development of the sport at all levels, what we’re most proud of is our alliance with an organization whose primary focus is on scholastic aptitude and on providing scholarships for the next generation of athletes and leaders.” said Karen Noseff Aldridge, President of Rebel Athletic.
“Beyond the excitement our cheer and dance participants and coaches have expressed about the amazing range of quality uniform options they’ll now have, we are proud to partner with a like-minded organization that is sincerely committed to working with kids on important issues like bullying,” said Jon Butler, the executive director of Pop Warner Little Scholars. “This announcement is the first of many as we usher in an exciting new era for Pop Warner and we continue to provide our young people with the very best partners imaginable.”
