Our Partnership with the Oakland County Sheriff Police Athletic League (PAL)
The Sheriff PAL Program began in 2015 with the goal of offering local youth free sports programming throughout the year. In our time as a program we have served over 1,000 local youth - with that number growing each season. We have offered sports such as soccer, basketball, baseball/softball, tee-ball, flag football, and cheerleading. After the skatepark is built in the 2 year timeframe required, PAL will introduce a youth mentoring skate program for Pontiac kids.
We have recently partnered with the Pontiac Skatepark Project as their fiscal sponsor to ensure that all your donations are tax deductible through our 501c3 nonprofit organization tax ID.
The partnership between the PAL program and PSP is a natural match for the betterment of the community through youth activities. PSP and PAL have been approved or a $250,000 matching grant from the Built To Play Skatepark Grant in 20202 and need to raise at least $50,000 to receive the matching funds up to $250,000 before November 2021.
