In partnership with the Toledo Police Department and community volunteers, Toledo PAL builds character in young people through athletics, academic and leadership development programs.

We strive to achieve four important goals for our youth:

* To produce young people with positive relationships with law enforcement officers

* To produce young people who will become productive citizens in the community

* To produce young people who will make positive choices effecting their future

* To produce young people who give back to their community


TOLEDO PAL HISTORY
Our Story

Retired Police Sergeant Buddy Buddy Carr founded the Toledo Police Athletic League (P.A.L.) boxing program in 1951 and further help to develop programs for youth in the community while treasuring his time in the gym coaching Toledo youth. 

In his 14 years of coaching, Buddy coached three Toledo Golden Glove teams which captured the team championship in Chicago Golden Gloves Tournament. One team in particular went on to become the U.S. Championship team. Buddy was a coach in the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome where gold medals were won by Wilbur “Skeeter” McClure (from Toledo), Ed Crook and Cassius Clay (a.k.a. Muhammad Ali). 

Buddy Carr was inducted into the Greater Toledo Athletic Hall of Fame in 1967, recognized by the Toledo Golden Gloves Association in 1992 for his work with area youth through sports, employment and education and inducted into the Woodward High School Hall of Fame in 1994.  After Sergeant Carr retired in 1981 the PAL program became stagnant until its reemergence in 1996.  Since than Toledo PAL year around programs have involved more than 200 youth athletes and dozens of adult volunteer's.  The Toledo-Lucas County Police Athletic League continues to help young athletes learn skill necessary to succeed both in the classroom and on the field.

As the PAL organization heads toward the future, we look forward to providing a safe outlet where the youth of our proud community can reach their goals for many years to come.
