California PAL Soccer
California PAL's largest and most successful tournaments have usually been our Northern Regional and Southern Regional Soccer Tournaments. Soccer is a huge sport here in our state and a large number of PAL chapters have youth Soccer programs. California PAL's Soccer Tournaments target these at-risk youth and bring them together from all around the state to compete in a fun and safe environment.
Our Calfornia PAL Soccer Tournaments are usually held in both Northern and Southern California in either April or May.
Stressing sportsmanship and fair-play, California PAL's Soccer Tournaments are not designed for the ultra-competitive traveling teams but for those kids that do not regularly participate in other organized leagues. California PAL and its member chapters target the at-risk low income youth that normally would not have the opportunity to compete in other Soccer leagues and give them the chance to come together in a confidence building situation that expands their horizons and gives them a safe and supervised outlet in their lives.
California PAL Soccer is played in both Boys and Girls divisions ranging from 12 & Under up to 16 & Under teams. California PAL follows the California Youth Soccer Association rules and guidelines and we ensure that each youth that participates in our tournaments has a chance to play in the games.
For many PAL youth, attending a California PAL Tournament may be the first time they have left their city or neighborhood. By supporting California PAL, you are enabling us to create opportunities for California's youth to participate in positive activities and reducing juvenile crime throughout the state.
