The Police Activities League football programs are governed by the Pop Warner Mid-South Regional Little Scholars, Inc. The Pop Warner organization provides youth football programs in 42 states and several countries around the world, consisting of approximately 400,000 young people, ranging from ages 5 to 16 years old. Pop Warner is the largest youth football program in the United States.

As the only national youth sports organization that requires scholastic aptitude to participate, since 1929, Pop Warner is committed to developing America’s young people on the field and off. Each year Pop Warner continues to expand its efforts in team and activity participation, as well as, visibility and outreach in the community.

The Police Activities League philosophy has been that athletics and scholastics go hand in hand. At every level, the Police Activities League seeks to develop well-rounded young men who learn not only the fundamentals of football, but also the importance of education in an atmosphere conductive to developing sound character while having a good time.


PAL - Cobra Football Camp
Cobra Football Camp is a two day skills camp sponsored by the Carolina Cobras Football Team-A semi-professional team of public safety officers. Cobra Camp is open to youth ages 7-14 years old. Cobra Camp is held every year at Revolution Park on the astro-turf football field. Youth will be taught basic fundamentals of football. They complete conditioning and tackling drills along with a football assessment. All participants will have the opportunity to learn offensive and defensive skills to determine their strengths.

All participants will receive a Cobra t-shirt, water bottle and certificate of participation. Lunch, juice and other refreshments are supplied during the camp.

PAL requires copies of the participant's birth certificate, last report card, annual PAL fee and PAL New Member Registration Form. Youth with a GPA below 2.0 are required to attend tutoring in order to be eligible for competition. Certified teachers provide several tutoring sessions during the week at our PAL facility. Youth will be required to complete the Cobra football camp application and submit $10.00 participation fee.

All coaches must pass a strict criminal background check and provide references before they can volunteer as coach. Coaches are from Carolina Cobra football team, Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Officers, Mecklenburg County Sheriff Office, Charlotte Fire Department, and other Public Safety departments. We also had coaches from the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Activities League – Pop Warner Division.

Camp is held each July.
Registration Cost: $50.00 per calendar year (If not already a PAL Member); $10.00 Cobra Camp fee
