The Police Athletic League of Tampa Inc. was organized as a crime prevention enterprise dealing with juvenile crime and violence through education, academically, and athletically, based around sports resources.
PAL serves more than four thousand young people from the community whom may not otherwise be able to participate in after-school programs or other activities. Tampa's PAL is one of the oldest and largest in the state of Florida.
The services offered by PAL include; daily after-school care and pickup from several Hillsborough County elementary schools and a variety sporting programs. PAL also operates a supervised summer care program targeting "At-Risk" inner-city children.
PAL, in partnership with the Tampa Law Enforcement community, is committed to the concept that there are no bad children, only those who lack responsible direction and positive role models. For more information about the Police Athletic League of Tampa, you may visit their web site.
