Our first contact with RC PAL started with JR. Giants. Our children absolutely love this baseball activity and look forward to it every summer.
PAL also offers Pool Pal where children can learn swimming for free. There are many more activities being offered through out the year. PAL staff work hard and are very awesome. We absolutely enjoy getting involved.

I would thank the PAL s and the team for their dedication in organizing countless events for the kids both educational and recreational. The volunteers are hardworking and friendly with the kids and thus supporting the event to be successful. PAL team is striving hard so the kids of the community be benefitted in every way. I once again thank PAL and their team from the bottom of my heart, for such a great support to the community.

Our family is so grateful for the Pool PALs program! My son has received swim lessons through the program and not only has learned important swimming skills but also the confidence in the water that he would not have had otherwise. He came into the program afraid of the water, but with the patience and teaching skills of the wonderful swim instructors from the Swimstitute, he has made such progress. I never learned to swim and always wanted this for my kids, and because of Pool PALs they now have this important skill. My son is now able to have enjoy water activities and I have the peace of mind he will be safe. Thank you so much Pool PALs, all the swim instructors, coordinators, and everyone who keep this program running!

Pool Pals staff are so nice and understanding of my children's needs. I recommend this organization to everyone with young children. My two girls have had nothing but improvement every week. I am very pleased and thankful to have them in this program.

Thanks to the Rancho Cordova PAL, my son was able to take swimming lessons that would’ve been unaffordable otherwise. The lessons are in small groups at an in-door heated pool.

The PAL has continued to welcome my son into this program. More programs like this should exist to serve children all around.

Absolutely love RC PAL. I have three very active boys and I appreciate that there are free programs being offered by RC PAL to keep them busy. Not only do they keep busy, the boys are taught positive character building, e.g. integrity, teamwork, etc. And also the importance of not bullying. We participate in Jr. Giants and Pool PALs. It's our 2nd year and my husband decided to volunteer as an assistant coach.

Our daughters have become much more comfortable in the water and have had a great time doing it. The instructors are very skilled and do an awesome job. I highly recommend enrolling your kids with pool pals.

My kiddos started in swimming lessons through RCPD PAL at the beginning of the summer, and have loved it. Though it took a bit of time to get things going with their free lessons, everyone was very communicative and kept me updated along the way. The process was very simple, and everything was designed to make he experience quick and pleasant. When the opportunity arises to continue the lessons, we were thrilled! Everyone was so courteous and pleasant to work with, and our experience has been amazing. One of the best programs I've encountered, and I am looking forward to seeing what other opportunities are offered through this program.

My 5 year old daughter has been taking swimming lessons through Rancho Cordova PALs once a week for the last 3 months or so. I cannot believe how much her swimming has improved! The first week she was in tears because she was so afraid of "sinking". The instructors have been so friendly and patient with her, reassuring her every step of the way. They know her by name and greet us every time we come to the pool. She trusts them completely now and so do I. She is gaining more skills each week and is so confident and proud of herself. It is truly amazing. I am very impressed with this program and the instructors.

By far the best place to volunteer and work for. RCPD PAL really cares about the community and holds many wonderful events for the community. The youth program (YLC) is amazing and teaches the youths to be leaders and positive role models for the younger generation. RCPD PAL is a fun place to work and definitely the best way to engage and interact with the community they serve.
