WHAT IS THE MIRACLE LEAGUE?
The vision of the Miracle League is to provide any disabled child, regardless of their level of disability, the opportunity to play league sports and enjoy the emotional and physical benefits of being part of a team sport.
The mission of the Miracle League of Greater New Orleans and the Miracle League North Shore is to promote the health and well-being of children with disabilities, provide opportunities for able-bodied children to learn about and interact with children with disabilities, and develop community awareness and support for the child athlete with disabilities through organized sports leagues. The Miracle League is designed to serve kids who cannot be accommodated by established baseball, basketball and soccer leagues due to the special needs of their disabilities. The vision of the program is to provide any disabled child, regardless of their level of disability, the opportunity to play league sports and enjoy the emotional and physical benefits of being part of a team sport.
Each program year is divided into two, eight-week baseball seasons that run September through November in the fall and March through May in the spring. Our soccer season runs for six weeks during January through February for our 6-12 year old and 13 and older bracket. All soccer games are held on Saturday mornings. Basketball runs from June through July, and all games are held on Saturday mornings.
Miracle League Northshore Was founded in 2014 in an effort to bring the Miracle League to serve St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, and Washington Parishes. A parent at Coquille Parks and Recreation with a special needs child approached the Recreation District 14 Board of Directors to begin the conversation and the campaign to make this dream a reality on the Northshore.
We are currently in a capital campaign to raise the required $850,000 to build the field and facility between baseball field 3 and softball field 4. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Noble-Bates Young.
