The Tampa Bay Patriots, inc. is a registered non-profit Minor League Football organization that is dedicated to providing exciting community events, as well as the growth and development of our local youth at the Police Athletic League. (P.A.L) P.A.L. provides affordable after school, summer and athletic opportunities to more than 500 Tampa Bay youth. P.A.L. has partnered with the Tampa Police Department to provide a safe, healthy environment for our community’s children and teens. P.A.L.’s partnership with the police department provides mentorship as well as safety and crime prevention programs. In addition, P.A.L. has partnered with the Tampa Bay Patriots and a number of community organizations to provide athletic, educational and recreational development. While P.A.L. serves a large number of youth, typically from low to moderate income households headed by a single parent, all children are welcome and encouraged to participate in our programs.
The biggest challenge of the PAL organization is the high cost of equipment and uniforms. The Tampa Bay Patriots provide volunteers (Coaches, etc,) mentors, equipment and money to help with uniforms.
