The PAL Promising Basketball League is a partnership between the Dallas Police Athletics/Activities League, The Promising Youth Alliance, Dallas Parks and Recreation, and the Dallas Independent School District. The league targets 6th grade boys and girls and was created to provide an outlet for this age group to participate in positive activities. Sixth graders are unable to participate in UIL sports, which presents an opportunity for this type of partnership. The Promising Basketball League is a pilot a program which could be used to develop other 6th grade sports leagues.
PAL Promising Basketball is currently in its 3rd week, with two weeks left to go. Games this Saturday December 12th will be held at Kennedy-Curry Middle School and A. W. Spence Middle School. The final games will be played December 19th at Exline Recreation Center. Games have also been played previously at Pleasant Oaks Recreation Center. PAL Promising Basketball has been very competitive, extremely fun and a showcase of good athletes.
