The Westport PAL is one of Westport's oldest youth Organizations.
Established in 1948, the Westport PAL continues to blaze a trail with many outstanding
Youth Athletic Programs, College Scholarships and their support of the Westport Community.
The Westport PAL is a non-profit organization run by both active and
retired police officers and volunteers from our Community.
At the core of the Westport PAL organization is our volunteers and our partnership with the town.
That is our secret to success.
PAL activities include the funding and producing of the annual Fourth of July Fireworks Show,
the Ice Rink at Longshore, Police Chief Sam Luciano Golf Tournament, Children's Holiday Party, College Scholarships and the numerous Youth Athletic Programs which include Football, Flag Football, Cheerleading, Rugby, Boys and Girls Basketball, Wrestling, Boys and Girls Lacrosse, and Boys and Girls Track & Field.
Today's Westport PAL has over 2,000 children participating in its sports programs and annually awards more than 25 College Scholarships.
There are many youth programs but there is only one PAL!
It's a 3-peat

TRAINING TIP OF THE WEEK
Sports participation is one of the best ways to maintain good health and also allows you to be social with friends and others in your community. Athletes should be encouraged to participate in multiple sports and avoid specialization in one sport. This will allow the athlete to avoid overuse injuries and avoid muscle imbalance from over-patterning.
Avoiding the occurrence of over-patterning allows the body to recover properly thus causing the athlete to have a better capacity for increased performance. The best way to decrease over-patterning is to have the athlete participate in two or three different sports throughout the year and have one season of the year where the athlete remains active but does not participate in a specific organized sport.
As always, an athlete should listen to their body. If there seem to be re-occurring injuries to the same area of the body during sports participation, it may be attributed to over-patterning. The best course of action is proper medical care and rest!
