After the final game of the day or evening, we will need 2 additional volunteers to return the yard markers and the pads to the storage room.

- Trash Cans- 2 or 3 volunteers needed. We need to keep the inside of the park looking good. That means making sure loose trash is picked up and put in a can. Also removing the full trash bags from the cans and putting them over by the large storage room. Putting new trash bags and then taping them to the cans.

- Optional for each team- Volunteers who have camcorders ( and possibly editing skills) to record the game for coaches and players to review and to possibly provide a season highlight (if someone is motivated to take on this project.)

Please let your head coach know what position you would like to volunteer for. We cannot put together home weekend games without parent and family volunteers in these important positions. You will meet new friends, have fun and have a sense of pride knowing you are giving back to your community.

Mission Statement

Welcome to the Peninsula Athletic League(PAL) website – home of the PAL Hawks. PAL is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1975 to offer children in the Greater Annapolis Area the opportunity to participate in youth sports. Currently we offer football, baseball/girls softball and cheerleading.

Our mission is to organize and develop highly competitive PAL Hawks Youth Football teams comprised of players from the Greater Annapolis area and its surrounding communities. We expect to provide our players with dedicated experienced coaching that will not only teach the physical aspects of football, but also a deeper understanding of how to play the game while maintaining high standards of excellence promoting good sportsmanship, teamwork, and respect for the individual.

The goal of the PAL Hawks Football Program is for every player to get the most out of his football experience by having fun, developing sound skills and working within a team-oriented culture that fosters a winning attitude. We expect to teach them the fundamentals of football, while helping them constantly challenge themselves to achieve, improve, progress and learn. Each person that joins the PAL Hawks accepts the commitment to become the best that they can possibly be.

We look forward to a great season and we encourage all parents to be as involved as possible to help make this a positive experience for your child. PAL parents should set the standard for good sportsmanship and encouragement at all times. We expect the kids to play hard at all times, to work together and to have FUN playing football!
