2021 Registration Fees
Due to the financial strains the past year has had on many PAL families, the PAL board of directors has been able to lower registration fees by $5 for the 2021 season.  Smart Start Soccer will be $20 (versus $25) and all other divisions will be $80 (versus $85).  This reduction is currently only for the 2021 season.

Concession Stand
PAL will not operate concession stands at the game fields during the 2021 season.  Parents and coaches will need to ensure they plan ahead to bring with them everything they need for games, especially water and other hydration, as they will not be available for purchase at the fields.

2021 Photos
PAL has decided to do team and individual photos again during the 2021 season, after not having official photos for a few years.  Shot In Focus Photography will be the photographer.  More information will follow closer to the start of the season.  Shot In Focus promises minimal impacts to teams getting photos taken.
