Wayne, NJ Police Athletic League
The Wayne Police Athletic League is a non-profit sports program designed for children of all ages (limited adults courses offered.) PAL provides a range of sports from traveling basketball teams to Tae Kwon Do. The Wayne Police Athletic League is organized for the purpose of fostering and encouraging the youth of Wayne Township.
The Wayne PAL is an affiliate of the National Association of Police Athletic Leagues that began in 1956 through the efforts of the Wayne Police Department and volunteers. Through the years the PAL has grown to be one of the largest in the country.
The mission of the Wayne PAL is entirely focused around KIDS!
The Wayne PAL reaches out to communicate with the young people of Wayne. Our kids have shown they have the motivation and energy to learn and develop the skills that will benefit them as individuals. The Wayne PAL is a preventative program, not a corrective one. Solving anti-social behavior through recreation programs alone is not the whole answer, but it is vital to any preventative program.
