About Us

Starting in September 2014, Lancaster started its first Police Athletic League (PAL). PAL is designed to connect cops and kids in a positive environment through sports and physical activities.

PAL programs are a mainstay across the United States, where police officers conduct youth development activities with neighborhood kids. 

PAL has proven itself to be an effective method for connecting law enforcement officers and community members in a positive manner. Police officers mentor local youth through programs such as basketball, archery, music, dance, and outdoor recreation. 

PAL Officer Josiah King: “We have the opportunity to change our youth’s future. As law enforcement officers we are excited to develop positive relationships with kids through athletics and activities.” Programs will include archery, basketball, flag football, wrestling, karate, track & field, outdoor recreation and much more.

The Lancaster PAL is made possible through the financial support of the Allstate FoundationThe Oxford Area FoundationAuntie Anne’s C.A.R.E.S., and BB&T Bank.

Without the financial generosity of both our donors and our partners, Lancaster City Police Athletic League (PAL) would not exist. Each of our donors also partners with other non-profit organizations so please consider visiting their websites and giving to their efforts as well. Together, we can have an impact that goes far beyond just our local community!

The following partners give to PAL indirectly through providing busing to and from events, space to train, practice, or play, hunting and fishing land and guides, as well as coaching and instruction. While these gifts are not monetary, they are incredibly valuable. Coaches and guides volunteer their time and expertise; facilities donate access to quality athletic courts, fields, and hunting land; and transportation allows our kids to travel and compete against top competition.
