Current Information:


Summer Soccer - Updated 6/27:  
Soccer 2020  
Plans are being formed for a short summer soccer season.  At this time there will not be a soccer clinic.  All precautions as specified by the state of NJ and the CDC will be followed.  Divisions will be formed based on ages of those who register.  The soccer program will be for those going into first grade through those going into 9th grade.  It is possible that we may not have enough registrations for certain age groups.  It is also imperative that we get volunteers to help coach.  Registration will be a two step process.  The preliminary form will be completed which will allow us to judge if we have enough interest for each age group.  Once we have enough interest you will be sent a link to the actual form to register and pay.  Nothing can start before July 6 and we expect to hold a 4 week program with two nights per week.   
Preliminary Registration Form

To Our Lincoln Park PAL Community:

With spring fully upon us now, it is sad to see the youth in our beloved town not being able to play any PAL sports. Some wonder if we will be able to play any sports at all this year, not only on a local level, but all the way up to professional sports as well.  Covid-19 has affected us all one way or another.

The Lincoln Park PAL is still looking to hold spring sports, as well as summer and fall sports that are coming upon us.   With that being said, spring sports are not officially cancelled and we hope to make a decision regarding spring and summer sports once more state and local guidelines are outlined for re-opening.  The safety of the boys and girls playing these sports, as well as our volunteer coaches, is our upmost priority at the Lincoln Park PAL. 

Please continue to follow social distancing guidelines and the guidelines set by the CDC, State of New Jersey and the Borough of Lincoln Park. The PAL will continue to provide updates on what we intend to do with the spring sports in the near future.  
The Borough has resources for additional information regarding the ongoing situation.  Please monitor their website, Facebook, Twitter and Channel 77 for additional information. 

Please know we are thinking of you and your loved ones and appreciate the role we get to play in your lives.  Stay safe all!

Thank you, 
Lincoln Park PAL Board

Amazon Smile - We know some of you purchase items on Amazon.  In fact, some of us purchase a lot on Amazon!  Amazon has a program where they donate a portion of their sales back to non-profit  organizations such as ours.  You don't pay anything extra as this donation comes out of their pocket, not yours.  How does it work you ask?  Simple go to smile.amazon.com and under organizations your supporting, select Police Athletic League of Lincoln Park Inc.  It's that easy!

ATTENTION ALL COACHES - The PAL board has recently implemented a new policy on concussion training.  Starting in 2019, all coaches will need to take the free CDC concussion online class.  This will be good for three years after which all coaches will need to take again.  The only coaches exempt from taking it this year will be new basketball coaches who took the class in November/December 2018.  This is such an important topic in helping you understand a concussion and the potential consequences of the injury to the young athlete.  After taking the class you must print out the certificate indicating your completion.   Click the image on the left to take class.  Be sure to print out certificate when complete.
