2014 5-6 Year Old In-House Tackle Football
PAL began a 5-6 year old In-House tackle football program in 2012. It was a great success. It replaced our flag football program. This gives parents an option for their 5 year olds to begin to learn the basic fundamentals of competitive tackle football.
Under this program, players will be equipped with full gear and will learn the skills the big boys do. Since this is an in house program, the strength of the program is dependent upon the number of 5 year olds that participate. It is our hope to be able to field at least two in house teams that will compete against each other on game day. If we can field more than two teams, that will make the in- house program even stronger.
This is a pilot program for PAL and we are aware that only a few other organizations have implemented this program. But we truly believe that this will help give PAL and our youngest players a strong foundation to feed into the older teams and it starts right here.
If you would like to discuss this program with the Commissioner, please contact Coach Gulley at firstname.lastname@example.org
Online Registration for In-House is OPEN, sign up today to secure a spot on this ground breaking program.

2014 Volunteers Needed For Each and Every Home Game
- Chain Crew- 3 Responsible Volunteers ages 16 and above per game to man the 10 yard markers and the down marker.
- Concessions Volunteers- Each team needs to have 2 or 3 volunteers take an hour or two each weekend and work the concessions. We need people inside the building and hamburger and hot dog grillers. No one will have to work during their child’s game.
- Game Announcers- We need 2 volunteers per game- a spotter to help the game Announcer and a Game Announcer with enthusiasm and an ability to pronounce names correctly.
- Sign makers- Volunteers to make signs to be put up at PAL Park for home games.
- Field preparation and field breakdown- Before the first home game on any given day or evening; we need 2 volunteers to help line the field and put the yard markers out and put the pads on the goal posts. Volunteers need to arrive at least 1 hour and 15 minutes before the first kickoff. 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.

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!
