Sports Activities Galore; Tacony PAL is Keeping Busy!

By P/O Bill Schneider, Tacony PAL Director

Tacony PAL is bursting at the seams with activity. Aside from everyday educational activities, mentoring programs and city-wide leagues, youth are provided with an opportunity to have fun with other children in their PAL center.

Beginning in September, youth at my center have been enjoying all that PAL has to offer. Tacony PAL ran its annual Wiffleball League, and all children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The season kicked off in September and ran through November. This year, Tacony PAL had two co-ed leagues – an 11-and-under league, and a 12-and-over league. More than 200 children participated between the two leagues this year.

More recently, Tacony PAL youngsters have been participating in our in-house flag football league. This program introduces youth to the sport of football, and provides an opportunity for boys and girls to interact together. The season will be ending within the next few weeks.

Following flag football, youth from Tacony PAL will be starting indoor soccer. The season kicks off in the beginning of February. All youth are welcome to sign up now!
