The Great Lakes Bay Miracle League relies on our amazing volunteers to help us deliver a positive, safe and enjoyable experience for our athletes. Volunteering with Miracle League is a great way to gain experience working with children with disabilities and to give back to the community.
The Great Lakes Bay Miracle League also needs volunteers to help out at our information table, on the field as umpires, and with other tasks.
Umpires provide support and encouragement to athletes as they round the bases and assist with safety and equipment. Umpires should be at least seven years old.
There are a number of volunteer opportunities available – we hope you’ll join us!
Buddies are paired with one player for the entire season and often develop a very special, rewarding relationship. They provide support and encouragement while ensuring their player’s safety. Buddies are required to attend their team’s games each Saturday for one hour and to arrive 30 minutes prior to their game. They make a season-long commitment to their player, sign the “Buddy Pledge” and receive community service hours. Buddies must be at least eight years old to participate.
If you are not able to commit to the entire season, there are a limited number of spots available to be a “floater buddy” and assist with athletes when needed. You may indicate “floater buddy” during the registration process.
