ALL ABOUT KIDS AND COMMUNITY

 

The Westport PAL is one of Westport's oldest youth Organizations.
 Established in 1949, the Westport PAL continues to blaze a trail with many outstanding
Youth Athletic Programs, Academic Scholarships and their support of the Westport Community.
The Westport PAL is a non profit organization run by both active and retired police officers
and volunteers from our Community.  

At the core of the Westport PAL organization is our volunteers and our partnership with the town.  
That is our secret to success.

PAL activities include funding and producing the annual Fourth of July Fireworks,
the Ice Rink at Longshore, Police Chief Sam Luciano Golf Tournament, Children's Holiday Party, 
Academic and Sports Scholarships
and the numerous Youth Athletic Programs which include Football, Flag Football, Cheerleading,
Boys and Girls Basketball, Wrestling, Boys and Girls Lacrosse, and Boys and Girls Track & Field.
Today's Westport PAL has 1900 children participating in its sports programs and 
Annually awards more than 25 Academic Scholarships.


There are many youth programs but there is only one PAL!
