About The Daly City Police Athletic League

The Daly City Police Athletic League is a truly non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was founded in 1957, the first Police Athletic League in California.   Our board is made entirely of volunteers, which is comprised of Daly City Police Department personnel and community members (past & present). There are currently 18 board members on the Daly City PAL Board. For additional information please visit the Board Member page to see who’s on the board.    Our mission is to build a partnership between our youth, the police, and the community through recreational, athletic, and educational programs designed to encourage our youth to develop good citizenship and leadership, reduce the incidence of juvenile delinquency, and improve the quality of life as our young people grow up to become successful and contributing members of the community. 

The Police Athletic League is about shaping lives for good citizenship.  It’s about building character in our youth.  It’s about cultivating in our youngsters an appreciation for, and the ability to achieve, the very best that life has to offer.  It’s about caring.  It’s about hope.  It’s the field of dreams that inspire kids to grow,  to feel good about themselves, and to accomplish things that cannot be barricaded within the confines of rundown neighborhoods or rundown self-esteem.


Each year, through independent fundraising and with the support of our generous community partners, the Daly City Police Athletic League helps off-set the costs to families so hundreds of boys and girls have the opportunity to participate in sports camps, organized leagues, and our Police Explorer Program.  In addition, the Daly City Police Athletic League has an educational component called the Daly City Police Athletic League Educational Scholarship Foundation referred to as PAL-ED.

To ensure that these programs remain available and affordable to all of our young people, we need your help.  We invite you and your business to join us in providing these programs to our kids by making a donation.  For more information on donations please visit the Donate page.
