Welcome to Westport PAL


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!

Staples High School head rugby coach David Lyme has helped the program grow into 3 teams:
Under 10 (non-contact), and U-12 and U-14 (full contact). Very quickly, the young Westporters have become formidable ruggers.
