The Pike Area Youth Athletic League is a non-profit organization for youth football and cheerleading. Serving the tri-state areas of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, P.A.Y.A.L. aims to inspire the youth of our local community and surrounding areas, and to practice the ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship and physical fitness.
The specific objectives of our program are: to familiarize all participants with the fundamentals of football and cheerleading; to provide an opportunity to participate in a supervised, organized, and safety oriented manner; and to keep the welfare of particpants free of any adult ambitions and personal glory.
Listen up Nittany fans! November 29, 2014 is "Youth Football Day" at Beaver Stadium, and PAYAL has been invited to participate! All PAYAL players, cheerleaders and their families are invited to take advantage of discounted game tickets to see Penn State vs. Michigan State on Saturday, November 29th. (Time TBA) Members of our league who participate will be able to take advantage of their Youth Football Day promotions, and the bigger the PAYAL presence, the better! Take a look at what they have to offer:
VIP Blue Bus Watch Party:
The first 5 groups of 50 people or more will be able to watch the football team walk from the iconic blue busses to Beaver Stadium from a VIP Area.
Holding of the Flag During the National Anthem:
The team that brings the largest group of people will have up to 40 players hold the flag on the field during the National Anthem.
The league which brings up the most people will have the opportunity for up to 250 members to take post-game photos inside Beaver Stadium.
Any team or league which brings 20 people or more will be recognized on the new video boards with a scoreboard message.
That Saturday is also Cheer and Dance Day, so our cheerleaders will be able to participate in the Cheer and Dance portion of the day!
