NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - What's could be better than days at the pool or bike riding around town for kids this summer? Two words--playing baseball!
The New Providence PAL baseball program is once again hosting Summer baseball and this year has been its most successful so far. With a focus on travel teams, their program has 15 teams comprised of over 200 players from 7-17 years old.
This season, these teams have competed in the NPGL, Cal Ripken Districts, High School Development League, and several tournaments both in- and out-of-state. These summer teams are competitive play, as evidenced by both the11U Gold and the 9U Green winning their respective NPGL Summer League regular season. Several of the teams are also competing in the League Playoffs this week. NP PAL also offers teams to New Providence's youngest players in kindergarten and first grade, with 3 T-Ball/Coach Pitch teams totaling 25 players this summer.
The program is run by volunteer coaches and in collaboration with NP High School coaching staff for middle and high school levels.
Formed in 1949 and celebrating their 70th-year anniversary, the New Providence Police Athletic League is a nationally affiliated non-profit organization that offers the area's youth the opportunity to participate in sports while developing lasting relationships with many of the volunteer members of our community. NP PAL provides competitive athletic programs for kids aged 5 through 18 including Baseball, Basketball, Cheerleading, Football, Softball, and Wrestling, all of which help promote self-confidence and a competitive spirit, and enable kids to learn responsibility.
