How can I help?

Be a Volunteer!

The success of the Miracle League of Delray Beach and The Miracle League of Palm Beach County depends on the grants, donations, sponsorships, and volunteers. The Miracle League of Delray Beach has several committees you can join to help in the organization, fundraising and advertising of the league. Also, when league play begins, volunteers are needed for “buddies” to assist the players at each game.

Buddies

  • Safety first
  • Playing Baseball & Having Fun
  • Encouragement

Miracle League Buddies are volunteer’s ranging in age from middle school students to senior citizens. These include family members and local youth and civic groups. Though we call them Buddies many people refer to the volunteers as “Angels in the Outfield.”

The following are the goals for The Miracle League Buddies:

  1.  To protect the Miracle League player at all times!
  2.  When a “big hitter” is up to bat, Buddies are to step in from of the Miracle League player for protection.
    Assist player according to their needs.
  3.  Always allow the Miracle League Player as much freedom as possible to play his/her own game.
  4.  Work closely with Coach, Asst. Coach, and Team Mom. Find out how they are going to run practice,
    game, and line-up for that day.
  5. Speak with the Miracle League player’s family to learn more about the player and their needs.
  6. Be of good spirit with enthusiasm, love, positive attitude, and concern in motivating the players and
    their families.
  7. Become the Miracle League player’s friend.
  8. Arrive at the field 30 minutes prior to game time. Be properly dressed. Clean buddy shirt and sneakers.
  9. Demonstrate high morals and integrity on and off the field. Set an example. Be a good role model.
  10. Always communicate with your player & league about dates when you will not be able to attend. Sign up
    for emails, Facebook, and the Team Wall app to get up-to-date information. This is also a great way to
    communicate with League Directors, Coaches, and families.Coach Julia Kadel, Executive Director CoachKadel@gmail.com 561-414-4441
  • Anyone can be a BUDDY! Individuals, student athletes, civic groups, church groups, business groups, youth groups, and families are all needed and welcome.
  • We ask that minors under the age of 16 be accompanied by a parent or group leader. Our players are ages 6-23 years, with varying levels of physical ability and cognitive function.
  • For the comfort of our players and our BUDDIES, we will work to match ages, sex, and ability level of players and BUDDIES to what is the best fit.
  • If you can’t donate your time, the Miracle League of Delray Beach is accepting monetary donations to help keep our league expanding and free to our wonderful families.
