Youth adaptive programs provide children with diverse physical abilities and special needs the chance to play sports and participate in learning opportunities in a safe, fun atmosphere. The Miracle League at the YMCA of Greater Richmond provides a chance to experience the joys and benefits that come from playing baseball.
On a completely accessible field, players take turns hitting the ball, fielding and throwing, just like the real game. Each participant is paired with a volunteer that helps as needed through the game.
Games are played Saturday mornings L. C. Byrd High School Sports Complex at 10301 Courthouse Road. Two games are played each weekend, at 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m.
Volunteering is easy, and so much fun! Whether yourself, a group of co-workers or family members, or your sports team wants to get involved, there are volunteer opportunities that are incredibly easy to do – no prior baseball experience needed! Volunteer for one game or both games. Or come be a supporter and cheer on the participants!
To volunteer or find out more, contact Katie Gholson, Director of Volunteer Engagement at the YMCA of Greater Richmond.
