About Us

2016_PAL_Logo

The Santa Clara Police Activities League (SCPAL) was founded by Former Chief of Police Frank Sapena in 1970. The goal was to bring Police, neighborhood volunteers, and kids together in a positive setting. SCPAL is a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching our youth the values and rewards that can be accomplished through athletics: self-determination, self-belief , goal-setting, teamwork, and respect for others.

Competent community volunteers lead SCPAL programs. The programs include Soccer, Boxing, Bowling, Bicycle Moto-Cross (BMX), Girl’s Softball, Judo, Wrestling, Fishing and Police Explorers. SCPAL programs are for anyone from 5 years old to 18 years of age with several programs for adults.

SCPAL depends solely on donations from individuals and corporations. The SCPAL Board of Directors holds many fund-raisers to help provide necessary equipment, uniforms and insurance. The goal of SCPAL is to provide sports activities at a low cost to all children. The Community looks forward to annual fund-raising events, which benefit these programs.

These events include:

  • The 4th of July BBQ in Central Park Pavilion
  • The Annual SCPAL Golf Tournament
  • The PAL-GALs Girls Fast Pitch Softball Tournament
  • The Art and Wine Festival at Central Park

SCPAL does not receive funds from telephone marketing. If you receive a call where the caller represents himself or herself as a representative of Santa Clara PAL, please contact the SCPAL office.

SCPAL has been in existence for over 47 years and we thank you for your support. To make donations or to get more information, please call the SCPAL Office Monday through Friday at (408) 615-4879, or write us at 601 El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA. 95050 (inside of the Santa Clara Police Department).
