PILSEN ATHLETIC LEAGUE IS A COMMUNITY BASED ORGANIZATION PROVIDING YOUTH BASEBALL & SOFTBALL FOR KIDS
Our mission is to provide quality, affordable youth sports programs, for both boys and girls to participate in activities, teach teamwork, courage, determination, usefulness, and belonging.
Pilsen Athletic League believes that the positive experiences sports and an active lifestyle bring, play an important role in a young person’s life.
PILSEN FOOD PANTRY SCHOLARSHIP
Founded by The Pilsen Food Pantry with an aim to make a difference in the Pilsen neighborhood in supporting players seeking to get involved.
The Mission of the Pilsen Food Pantry Scholarship program is to assist families with financial hardship. For players that are accepted into the program, league fees for the season in question will be granted in full through a scholarship.
The Pilsen Food Pantry will advertise during our registration process when they will be hosting registration in their facility.
They operate their own independent registration dates.
THE NO PLAYER LEFT BEHIND INITIATIVE
Pilsen Athletic League is committed to providing a program that allows every child to play. We aim to offer an affordable program for our players and families while maintaining the financial health and sustainability of the league.
Funding is available based on the league’s annual budget, community sponsorship, and the overall number of registrations. With this in mind, we ask that you only request a scholarship if paying the full registration fee would cause a genuine financial hardship for your family.
Families applying for a scholarship acknowledge that the league is run solely by volunteers and we ask that parents of scholarship recipients will give back to Pilsen Athletic League in any way they can. A list of opportunities will be listed during the registration process.
You may think Volunteering in a Youth Sport can be a daunting task, especially if it’s something you’ve never done before. But have no fear because Volunteering is far more enjoyable, rewarding, and fun than you can imagine.
Someday your players will look back on their playing days and be grateful that you were there!
PILSEN ATHLETIC LEAGUE RELIES ON A DEVOTED LEGION OF VOLUNTEERS TO HELP ENSURE THAT THE SEASON RUN SMOOTHLY
Your support is vital toward helping us maintain low registration fees and provide life lasting memories for our local youth.
