The Detroit Police Athletic League

The Detroit Police Athletic League (PAL) positively influences the lives of thousands of children each year. With roots dating back to 1969, PAL works to create safe and supportive places for kids to play. With year-round programs, Detroit PAL helps its athletes learn the skills needed to succeed both on and off the playing field. In 2019-2020 the Detroit Lions provided support for the Detroit PAL Youth Football League through grant funding used for site monitors, sports officials and helmet refurbishing.

Virtual Parent & Athlete Panel Discussion

Virtual Parent & Athlete Panel Discussion: In November of 2020, the Detroit Lions partnered with PAL to create a unique virtual event for PAL athletes, their parents, and coaches. Lions Legends engaged in discussion with parents around how to support their young athletes while Lions players spoke with athletes on perseverance and how to make the most of their years playing football.
