The Greater Melbourne Police Athletic League, Inc. (PAL) is a registered non-profit 501(c) organization dedicated to providing educational and athletic activities for youth.
PAL utilizes educational, athletic and recreational activities to create trust and understanding between police officers and youth. It is based on the conviction that young people - if they are reached early enough - can develop strong positive attitudes towards police officers in their journey through life toward the goal of maturity and good citizenship.
Melbourne PAL is a charter member of the National Association of Police Athletic Leagues, recognized as the largest juvenile crime prevention program in the nation.
A Board of Directors governs Melbourne PAL. These volunteer board
members are community leaders that contribute their time and talent
to ensure positive programming is made available to our youth.
Melbourne PAL provides multiple programs to over 1,000 youth of Greater Melbourne, supervised by over 100 coaches and volunteers. Melbourne PAL is funded through grants, fundraising, and registration fees. Donations are greatly appreciated. Volunteers are welcomed!
