The PAL Football Jr. Pee Wees were recognized for their undefeated season at the December 18 Town Council meeting, and they just celebrated their 50th year of serving the children of West Orange in October.
The Spring season at PAL offers Baseball and Kickball for boys and girls. The PAL Baseball Cutoff Date has now changed to match official Little League rules.

The PAL baseball season begins in April and will continue until the end of June.

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.
