Detroit PAL School Leagues
Detroit PAL partners with more than 105 schools in the Greater Detroit area to provide quality extra-curricular program programming for student-athletes.
How Detroit PAL Works with Schools
The benefit for schools is the expertise of Detroit PAL as an independent league administrator. A dedicated Commissioner creates the schedules, updates standings, and provides certified referees for the regular season and playoffs. A great benefit to schools is the IMPACT Training & Certification Program, developed in partnership with Michigan State University’s Institute for the Study of Youth Sports. This proprietary 3- year course teaches coaches how to be mentors while keeping kids first. The certification includes a yearly background check and a credentialed badge.
Detroit PAL School Sports Offered
Our present school sports leagues feature Boys School Basketball, Girls School Basketball, Volleyball, and School Track. Detroit PAL offers Spring Soccer, Fall Soccer, Baseball, and Softball where schools field teams in the recreational program against similarly aged youth. Detroit PAL runs the Soccer for Success program in selected schools to teach nutrition and provide a soccer curriculum to keep kids active 2-3 days per week.
