Welcome to Westport PAL


The Westport PAL is one of Westport's oldest youth Organizations.
 Established in 1948, the Westport PAL continues to blaze a trail with many outstanding
Youth Athletic Programs, College Scholarships and their support of the Westport Community.
The Westport PAL is a non-profit organization run by both active and
retired police officers and volunteers from our Community.  

At the core of the Westport PAL organization is our volunteers and our partnership with the town.  
That is our secret to success.

PAL activities include the funding and producing of the annual Fourth of July Fireworks Show,
the Ice Rink at Longshore, Police Chief Sam Luciano Golf Tournament, Children's Holiday Party, College Scholarships and the numerous Youth Athletic Programs which include Football, Flag Football, Cheerleading, Rugby, Boys and Girls Basketball, 
Wrestling, Boys and Girls Lacrosse, and Boys and Girls Track & Field.

Today's Westport PAL has over 2,000 children participating in its sports programs and annually awards more than 25 College Scholarships.

There are many youth programs but there is only one PAL!
Happy Independence Day-Thank You

A Fourth of July Surprise!

Westport PAL Football Registration is Now Open


Westport PAL Football 2020 Registration is Open.  





Wrecker Football Fans,

The PAL Football Board is continuing to navigate through these unprecedented times and we are hopeful that there will be a safe and successful fall  football season.  We wanted to update you on our registration policies for the upcoming 2020 season. Our registration period opened on April 1st and will remain open through July 31st

We are changing our payment policy for the upcoming season; we are asking families to register at your convenience, however, we will not be collecting payment until a later date when we can make the determination that we will be having a 2020 season. We ask that you process your registration now and once a decision is made for the season we will then ask for payment at that time and ahead of equipment pick-up.

For those families that have registered and paid in full we will give a 100% refund in the event the season is canceled. 

By registering your child we will be able to continue to plan for the upcoming season so that once a decision is made we will be ready to roll.

Once a decision is made we will send a notification to all families that payment will be due prior to equipment pick-up.

The PAL Football Program is committed to supporting the Wrecker Nation and will update you as we continue to follow the recommended guidelines of our public health officials during this pandemic.

Go to and register today.  


Our 2020 PAL Football lineup for this Fall will be as follows:


  • Modified Travel Flag Football – Westport PAL Football and the Fairfield County Football League (FCFL) are excited to announce a Travel Flag Football league for 3rd and 4th graders.  Travel Flag Football will use Flag football rules and wear full equipment; helmets, shoulder pads,
    football pants, and game jerseys. (Tackling is not allowed, flags are pulled to down ball carriers). 
    Teams will compete against other FCFL town teams with modified field size and FCFL referees.


Travel Flag Football will be for players interested in a more competitive football experience where coaches will be teaching safe football fundamentals and key skills such as throwing, catching, ball carrying and blocking techniques. Certified coaches will conduct practices in accordance with PAL and Staples Football curriculum and fundamentals. PAL may cap registration at 2 teams per grade and hold evaluations to select rosters.
Teams will practice twice per week with a game on the weekends. (PAL will make efforts to avoid conflicts with travel soccer).
Note: there will be no Tackle football option for 3rdand 4th graders.



  • PAL Tackle Football – Westport PAL Football and the Fairfield County Football League will continue to offer our tradition tackle football program for 5th-8th graders in the 2020 season.  Pre-season will begin on Monday, August 17h this year, continuing with 2 weeks of pre-season of practices with the FCFL Jamboree taking place on the weekend of August 29th  & 30th the regular season running 8 weeks with single elimination playoffs to follow.  


To ensure a great experience for every player, we will hold tryouts for each position. Teams will practice 3 days per week with a game on the weekend.

  • House Flag Football – Our Flag Football Program is for 1st-8th grade boys and girls.  This NFL based Flag program provides a fun and safe football experience with NFL team jerseys and flag sets that each player can keep and is guided by NFL Flag rules.  Play is divided into 1st/2nd grade, 3rd/4th grade, 5th/6th grade and 7th/8th grade.  PAL Commissioners will attempt to put rosters together based on schools.   Practice will be held once per week with a game on Saturday mornings, and the season will start the weekend of September 7th.  Westport may participate with other towns such as Weston, Wilton and Fairfield.
