PAL Basketball 2020-2021 Information!

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Athletes,

On November 19 Governor Lamont announced that all club and other team sports must pause all activities until January 19. This will become effective on Monday, November 23.

Torrington PAL will be suspending all basketball activities as directed by the Governor. We plan to continue travel basketball on January 19, 2021. If you have already registered your child and submitted the registration fee, we will hold your registration active. If for some reason we are unable to resume activities on or about
January 19, 2021 your registration fee will be refunded to you.

If you did not have a chance to register your child for travel basketball, we have temporarily disabled the registration software until we have word that basketball will resume on January 19, 2021.

Citywide basketball has been suspended. We do not have access to a gym at this time due to the Covid-19 virus. We will continue to assess the situation and, if possible, will begin registration for Citywide basketball on or about January 19, 2021.

On behalf of our President Ralph Calabrese, our Board of Directors, and our PAL staff we wish you and your family a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact PAL at

Christopher M. Smedick
PAL Executive Director

Why is PAL an important institution?

Chief William Baldwin City of Torrington Police Department

The Torrington PAL program is a significant outreach opportunity which provides an interaction between the Torrington area youth and members of the Torrington Police Department. The PAL program offers a way to bridge gaps between law enforcement and the youth which will be a positive benefit for our city by being a valuable resource for our local youth. As the police chief I am very much committed to this program as I believe that our youth are a significant asset to all of us. It is through the PAL program and our partnerships with the business and residential Torrington community, that our department will be able to reach out and interact with the Torrington area youth, as well as those adults that support them, to build positive relationships. It is through the hard efforts and  hard work of the Torrington PAL Board of Directors and our partnership that makes this program the success that it is and will continue to be.

Our Mission at Torrington PAL

The Torrington Police Activities League promotes character development and self esteem while building positive relationships among children, our police officers, and the community. Our Program works in partnership with the Torrington Police Department providing children with alternatives to crime, violence and substance abuse.
