A Brief History of the East Windsor Police Athletic League
Much is written and reported in the news about kids at risk in society today. All children face difficult challenges at school, at home and on the playing field.
The Police Athletic League (PAL) is dedicated to providing programs which offer children an opportunity to participate with positive roll models and risk success and failure on a level playing field without drugs, guns or violence.
The PAL is a non-profit organization spanning over 90 years of commitment to youth. It is the largest organization of law enforcement agencies utilizing athletics, recreational, and educational activities to instill positive life principles and character building tools in an effort to deter juvenile crime and violence.
Serving approximately two million youth between the ages of 3-18, nationally there are over 700 cities and 1700 facilities conducting programs and activities through PAL.
Organized in 1968,incorporated in 1970, the East Windsor Police Athletic League (EWPAL) is sponsored by the East Windsor PBA Local 191. Since that time, the EWPAL has grown from serving approximately 100 children to our current enrollment of over 3000. In 1991 EWPAL was granted a lease from East Windsor Township for our Airport Road Complex and in May of 1999 we celebrated the opening of our new facilities. We are proud to be able to provide safe alternatives year round for all the children in our community.
