Seaside Police Activities League (SPAL)

The Seaside Police Activities League (SPAL) is a juvenile crime prevention program designed to provide athletic, recreational and educational opportunities for at-risk youth and to reinforce responsible values and respect. Such respect is beneficial to the youth, police officers, our neighborhoods and the business community. SPAL is comprised of police officers, volunteers and police personnel who serve as coaches, mentors, instructors and role models. Their devoted dedication and time is a vital essence in hopes of enhancing a brighter future for our youth.

Seaside PAL Youth Basketball

The Seaside Police Activities League and the City of Seaside Recreation Services Department bring to you an organized and instructional youth basketball league for boys and girls ages 5-14. This league is all inclusive and players will receive equal opportunity in play time as all skill levels are welcome. Participants learn the rules of the court on both sides of the ball, teamwork, and sportsmanship.

For the 2018-2019 season, teams will practice during the week depending on their age division and games will be played on Saturdays. Division 1 (ages 5-6) and Division 2 (ages 7-9) will play in-house league games, as Division 3 (12 and Under) and Division 4 (14 and Under) will play games and opponents of the Peninsula League community.

SPAL was incorporated in February 2001. The Monterey Peninsula Unified School District and the City of Seaside Parks and Recreation Department support SPAL by providing gyms, fields, facilities, and resources for its youth programs. Local businesses and individuals of the Seaside community generously donate their time, money, resources, and services to strengthen SPAL and help make it successful.
