What sports can my child play?
SFPAL offers four athletic activities in addition to our Law Enforcement Cadet Program: Football, Cheerleading, Fishing, Judo, and Sandlot.
How old does my child have to be to play on a SFPAL team?
Each program has different age or grade requirements. The requirements are:
How can I find a team for my child?
If your child does not have a team, all is not lost. You can often find a team with room on its roster or that needs players to meet the minimum requirements to play. Check each program for information specific to that sport.
How can I find a coach for my child’s team?
If your team has lost a coach, or you have a new group of kids who want to play but can’t find a coach, SFPAL may be able to help. Contact the SFPAL office and let us know your particular situation. We know many coaches and may be able to help you find a match.
Can I volunteer to coach a team?
We love volunteers! Check the requirements for the sport you are interested in. Some sports require a special license or other material.
In general, coaches must fill out an SFPAL coach/adult volunteer form. Coaches must also pass a criminal background check and be fingerprinted. Contact SFPAL for further information.
