Description

The Miracle League removes the barriers that keep children with mental and physical disabilities off the baseball field and lets them experience the joy of America’s favorite pastime. Since the main barriers for these adults arise from the natural grass fields used in conventional leagues, Miracle League teams play on a custom-designed, rubberized turf field that accommodates wheelchairs and other assertive devices while helping to prevent injuries.

But it’s more than playing a game. The Miracle League is about making new friends, building self-esteem and being treated just like other athletes.  To help the athletes, the Miracle League uses a “buddy” system – pairing each player with an able-bodied peer.  The result is a bond that cannot be described. The Miracle League serves children and adults who suffer from any physical or mental disabilities, which causes them to be excluded, whether intentionally or not, from conventional Baseball leagues.

The Y nurtures the potential of children through youth sports programming by strengthening character in our youth, engaging families, and building lasting relationships. Participants in these programs build skills, learn about teamwork, and focus on sportsmanship. Families are presented with second-to-none volunteer opportunities as coaches, team parents and committee members

PROGRAM REFUNDS

Refund Eligibility
If you wish to request a refund before the regular registration period concludes, you may be eligible for a refund, subject to a processing fee. For household members, the processing fee is $5. For youth & non-members, the fee is $25.

Processing Fee Waiver
The processing fee will be waived if you opt to receive a credit to your Y account instead of a refund via credit card or check.

Refund Limitations
No refunds or credits will be provided after the commencement of the first session, practice, or game.

Coach, Practice, and Player Requests
Refunds will not be granted solely based on the inability of the YMCA to accommodate coach, practice, or player requests made during the registration process.
