Concord P.A.L. (Police Activities League)
The Concord Police Activities League was formed to help bring youth under the supervision and constructive influence of responsible adult role models, including police officers, through a variety of sports, educational and recreational activities, to serve as an effective and powerful antidote to juvenile delinquency. Active participation should impact desirable educational, social and personal values; development of a positive self-image; learning of successful interpersonal skills and other life skills that mitigate against the occurrence of juvenile delinquency.
At this time Concord PAL is comprised of a Board of Directors who is committed to maintaining a connection to community youth either in their professional capacities or through the School Resource Officers assigned to area high schools. The Board meets monthly to make decisions on sponsorships of monetary awards to area athletes that are in need of assistance with sports program fees or individual equipment needs. The Board is equally interested in sponsoring trips outside of athletics for youth as volunteers are identified.
Concord PAL does not run competitive sports league (such as baseball, basketball, football, soccer, etc.) due to the numerous leagues already in the Concord area. Please check the telephone dictionary for those services. You may also want to contact the City of Concord Parks and Recreation Department at (925) 603-5826 for information regarding their programs.
The Community Youth Center (CYC) is located at 2241 Galaxy Court, Concord, CA 94520. Telephone: (925) 671-7070. CYC offers academic tutoring, boxing, wrestling, taekwondo, cheerleading, dance, gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, sport specific conditioning, judo and outdoor activities (fishing, hunting, camping, and farming).
