Serving All of South Jersey Since 1989
The Egg Harbor Township Police Athletic League was established in 1989 as a non-profit 501(c)(3). Donations are tax deductible. Youth organization by several young officers of the Egg Harbor Township Police Department. These officers sought to create a better relationship and understanding between our youth, the police and the communities we served.
Over the last 3 decades we have grown from a small organization serving a few dozen children a year and working out of our police cars, to one serving thousands of children every year with a 35 acre campus and nearly 47,000 square feet of building space.
Today with a new name to better represent our expanded role, the Police Activities League of Egg Harbor Township and Atlantic County, in partnership with numerous police agencies, a variety of community groups, all levels of government and the private sector, we continue to serve the entire South Jersey Community. Our programs now range from STEM and robotics to numerous arena sports and summer camps.
In 33 years we have served 32,000 plus children and our mission has remained the same…
To improve Police/Youth/Community Relations
To promote and advance the needs and welfare of our children
To actively participate in constructive endeavors for the promotion and safeguarding of the interest and general welfare of our children
To provide a meeting place where children may enjoy educational, social and athletic activities under competent supervision and excellent role models.
As a non-profit we depend on the support of our community to help us to provide quality educational and recreational programs. Please join us as we continue to serve the community and create a better place for all of our children and the entire South Jersey community. Come discover the possibilities that the Police Activities League has to offer and how you can help.
