Our History

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 34 years we have served 32,000 plus children and our mission has remained the same…
