On behalf of the entire PAL Football and Cheerleading Association, we are excited to welcome you to the start of the 2017 season!
As we are busy preparing for our season, there are a few important dates and information we would like to share with you.
First, we want to remind you that the PAL organization is a volunteer youth organization which is mostly run by dedicated parents who lend their valuable time each week. We are always encouraging parents to get involved and help make a difference in their child's experience. Please contact Joanna Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering this season.
Practice will be held twice a week and games will be on the week-ends at PJ Romano Field or at an opponent's stadium in Fairfield County. The game schedule will be available by the beginning of September. The 2017 season games will begin in the first week of September and end with playoffs the third week of November.
IMPORTANT DATES: Westport PAL Cheerleading Camp at Saugatuck Elementary School (PJ Romano Field) August 21-25 From 4:00 - 5:00pm
Westport PAL Cheer Camp is just the way to start off the season. The girls will be learning basic cheers and half-time routines from their regular season Westport PAL coaches. The camp is very important not only because it teaches each girl the skills she needs to become a successful cheerleader in a safe environment, but it also allows the girls to bond and become a team. While attendance is not mandatory, it highly recommended to start the season with this valuable practice base. There is no additional cost for this program.
Regular Season Practices at Saugatuck Elementary School (PJ Romano Field) Beginning on August 28
Bantam, Junior/Senior Squads Mondays and Fridays 4:00 - 5:30
Practice will be held every Monday and Friday for all squads. In the event of inclement weather, every effort will be made to move indoors to a Westport school location. You will receive an email by 3pm the day of practice if the practice will be cancelled or moved indoors.
Medical Forms are needed by the first day of the camp or your daughter will not be permitted to participate. Please bring a copy to the first day of camp or make sure you have emailed the most updated form ahead of time: email it to email@example.com

Cheerleading is one of the most rewarding sports (YES!! it is a sport!). It can be a great experience for your child. It teaches discipline, strength, responsibility, accountability, friendship and self worth.
We are so thrilled to be working with your girls this season.
