The Greater Norristown Police Athletic League is a non-profit, volunteer
organization serving the youth and families of the Greater Norristown
community with recreational, educational, and cultural programs
addressing citizenship, self-esteem, avoidance of substance
abuse, and respect for law and order.

Since 1976, Greater Norristown PAL (GNPAL) has served thousands of area youth in a variety of programs.  In 2005, the GNPAL moved into the old Stewart National Guard Armory building near the Elmwood Park/zoo/sports complex, and the building is now called the Greater Norristown PAL Center.

You must be a GNPAL member to participate in leagues, classes, or programs.  GNPAL members must also pay any fees for classes or programs that they want to participate in.  Members will receive a card that must be presented to gain access to the GNPAL Center.

A membership application is available in PDF format by clicking here.  Adobe Reader is needed to open the file.  To obtain a free copy of Adobe Reader, click on Adobe Reader.
