The Oklahoma City Police Athletic League (OKC PAL) is once again the beneficiary of OKC Charity Fight Night.  In 2009, Fight Night raised a net amount of approximately $11,000.  That number has grown significantly and consistently since then leading up to 2016, which netted a total of nearly $200,000.

Currently, programming offered to schools in OKCPS through OKC PAL includes annual traditional sport camps like soccer, baseball, basketball, volleyball, football, and hockey, and non-traditional sport programs like RallyBall, combative and non-combative martial arts, and boxing. The financial stability afforded to OKC PAL through Fight Night has allowed  expansion from serving elementary school students to  now include students all the way through high school, and ideally beyond. Because of support from OKC Charity Fight Night, these programs are offered to our students at no cost to them, their families, or their schools.

OKC PAL was formed in 1991 through a resolution approved by the Oklahoma City Council.  The National Association of Police Athletic/Activities Leagues, recognized as the largest juvenile crime prevention program in the nation, certified OKC PAL as a chapter member on March 11, 1991.  OKC PAL is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) corporation governed by a Board of Directors comprised of members from the community.  It is staffed with full-time sworn police officers and police employees from the OCPD Police Community Relations Unit.  The first OKC PAL Center, located at 3816 S. Robinson, opened in October 2009 serving the Capitol Hill community on the south side of Oklahoma City.

The Oklahoma City Police Athletic League (OKC PAL) is a juvenile crime prevention program providing educational and athletic activities for all children, primarily those in high-risk neighborhoods.

OKC PAL is dedicated to reducing crime by providing safe, healthy alternatives for children from high risk OKC PAL youth in Oklahoma Cityneighborhoods.  PAL exists with the belief children can stay away from negative lifestyle choices such as gangs and drugs when offered positive, healthy alternatives.  PAL is not like any other program.  It is driven by a philosophy of teamwork, fair play, courtesy and consideration for others.
