Building Relationships for more than 70 years.

All across America, Police Athletic Leagues have fostered strong relationships between the police and the communities they serve, especially with young people.

Here in Kansas City, Kansas we couldn't be more proud of our community and the opportunity to create new connections with young people. Each of us can remember that one coach, mentor, teacher or adult who took the extra time to invest in us. This is at the heart of the PAL KCK mission, to be worthy role models for young people growing up in our city today.

More than just fun activities, we want to help KCK kids build the self-confidence, leadership and problem-solving skills needed to thrive in today's world. We are eager to see them grow and then reinvest their gifts back into our community.
