The Fullerton Police Athletic League was formed in the mid-80’s for the purpose of creating a legally responsible entity to manage, direct, and organize the activities and disbursements of the Fullerton Police Athletic League (FPAL) for the benefit of members of the community and the association. The purpose of FPAL encompasses the providing and facilitating of a wide range of activities to enhance the athletic, charitable, recreational, and social relationships of the community and members of FPAL.
To date we have over 120 members which include sworn and non-sworn employees.
Every year FPAL sponsors many events to bring together its members building comradery and lifelong friendships. March is Baker to Vegas, for those of you who don’t know what B2V is; it is a relay race consisting of 20 sworn officers running 20 separate legs totaling 120 miles through the desert. This is a huge event which brings Law Enforcement together from all over the word.
May brings our annual Michael MacDonald golf outing, this golf event celebrates the life of Sergeant Michael MacDonald who passed away from cancer. 2016 will be the 7th annual!
June/July brings our yearly River trip to Laughlin. This is one of the longest running events for FPAL.
Over the last few years in September FPAL has been hosting an Angel Baseball tailgate, as always a great time.
October brings our annual Charger tailgate, but with the Rams coming to LA we might have to tailgate a little closer! Maybe the Rams/49ers game
Throughout the year FPAL also sponsors several golf foursomes to play in local tournament to support some great charities.
FPAL also encourages its members to be active and will help with costs of athletic events they participate in.
Every year FPAL donates thousands of dollars to most of the local youth sport teams and High Schools. As you can see, FPAL is about giving back to the community and its members!
