11th Annual Manatee PAL Golf Classic & Large Mouth Bass Fishing Tournament
We would like to invite you to participate in the 11th Annual Manatee PAL Golf Classic & Large Mouth Bass Fishing Tournament, which is on Nov. 1st, 2021, at the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Golf Club.
The Police Athletic League of Manatee County, (aka Manatee PAL) provides programs for youth with wide and varying interests. These programs seek to develop mind and body through academics and sports training from Manatee County Law-enforcement Officers. Mission statement: to strive to bring law enforcement, kids, and families together in a positive, safe environment through sports and academics to build a strong community.
The relationship between our law-enforcement officer coaches and the children who participate in our programs help to prevent gang violence and drug activity using educational and sports activities. PAL is based on the strong belief that children, if reached early enough, can develop a strong positive attitude in their journey through life.

From the Manatee Pal Website:
Many youth in Manatee County live in neighborhoods threatened by gangs, drugs, violence and poverty. The Manatee Sheriff’s Office reports that the most prevalent youth crimes are assault, burglary and vandalism. Studies show that youth engaged with law enforcement officers and other adult mentors are less likely to become involved in these types of crime. PAL provides a safe place where athletics and academic reinforcement instill pride, responsibility, self-confidence, teamwork and respect. We strive to be the most affordable and outstanding sports program in Manatee County.
With our dedicated volunteers and law enforcement coaches in the program, PAL provides many opportunities for youth to learn and grow. College scholarships can be the roadmap out of circumstances that prohibit success. PAL athletes often receive college sports and academic scholarships to pursue their education after high school. We believe this is an important way for youth to travel toward success in life. At PAL positive values are taught and support is always provided.
