About Us

What is PAL?

The Fort Myers Police Athletic League (PAL) prides itself on providing social, cultural, recreational, and educational programs, events, and activities for youth within the City of Fort Myers at little to no cost.   PAL strives to mentor and teach strong character skills such as teamwork, honesty and integrity. Our educational activities expose youth to positive experiences many have not encountered before.  PAL strives to connect law enforcement and youth in a positive way.  PAL utilizes athletics as well as recreational and educational activities to instill positive life principles and character building tools.

PAL Goals

Many programs are coached or chaperoned by committed police officers who believe in the philosophy that to build a better future for Fort Myers, you have to start with the youth.  Police officers and other responsible adults volunteer their time to lead the activities. The practices and events give children fun activities to participate in and keep them busy. At the same time, the officers serve as positive role models for the youngsters.  The goal of PAL is to enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens:  "Every child deserves an opportunity to realize their potential. It is amazing to watch these kids grow, learn and develop confidence. They are the leaders of tomorrow. We are challenging you, the members of this community, to support our future leaders."
