The season begins August 1st at the High School Baseball field and practices are Monday through Friday until our first game in mid September.  The PAL offers A and B games at the Junior Pee Wee (8 and 9 year olds) and Pee Wee (10 and 11 year olds)  Levels.  This was a carefully designed program designed by concerned parents, the West Orange High School Athletic Director , High School Football Coach and PAL Administration.  The goal was to provide the best services for the largest number of children. A and B teams are all part of the same team. "A" kids can move between both A and B, but "B" games exist for kids who may need a little more help in certain areas of play. 

The West Orange PAL Cheerleading offers girls from 3rd grade to 8th grade the opportunity be a part of the West Orange Mustangs.  The PAL Cheerleaders not only supported the Mustang Football players to many championships but also placed in competitions around the state.
