The Police Athletic League of Kansas City (PAL) offers fun, interactive programs for youth and KCPD officers. PAL is rooted in the belief that all youth deserve the opportunity to expand their horizons and realize their full potential. From mountain biking to playing on the PAL baseball field, we offer a wide-range of activities that build the kids’ confidence, motivation and offer a positive role model.
In all PAL activities, a life skills curriculum is presented by PAL officers and all PAL youth are required to maintain a 2.0 grade point average in school or attend tutoring and make a good faith effort to raise their GPA.
As we coach and mentor these children, we are learning as much from them as they are from us. We work together as a team of PAL youth, the communities in which they live and the dedicated men and women of the Kansas City Police Department. The positive relationships formed between police officers and the community will carry far past the walls of the PAL centers.
