Miracle League of CT News
It appears that Spring has FINALLY sprung! Here is some news about our Spring Baseball Season and other upcoming events and programs
Spring Baseball
Our season kicked off on April 22nd with more than 120 players on 7 different teams. We began the day by announcing that our Miracle League of CT Field will be known to us from now on as The Great American Ball Field. This is our small way of recognizing the incredible contributions from our friends at Great American Donut, A Dunkin' Donut Franchisee. Week 2 was washed out my Mother Nature. Morning showers left the field wet for a good part of the day. Unfortunately a wet field is a slippery field and we never want to put anyone in harm's way. We are looking forward to a nice forecast for the upcoming weekend. We will follow the week #3 schedule for the day.
This Sunday 5/6 is also picture day. Positive Images will be on site to take professional photos of your child in their uniform. Please plan to arrive at least 20 minutes before your scheduled game time so that we can get all of the pictures taken before our games begin. Please click HERE to download the photo order forms. It will save lots of time if you have them filled out before you arrive.
FREE Lacrosse Clinic
We will be having a FREE Lacrosse Clinic on Saturday May 5th at the Great American Ball Field (Our Miracle League Field) in West Hartford. Coach Brian Wilcox and his team from the East Catholic Girls Lacrosse Team will be on hand to teach any child with physical and or cognitive challenges ages 5-21 the basics of the fastest growing sport in America. There will be a session at 1:00 pm for players ages 5-11 and at 2:30 for players ages 12-21. We will be providing all of the equipment necessary. Even though this is a Free event we ask that you register in advance by clicking HERE .
Summer REC Clinics
The Miracle League of CT and Chapter 126 Sports & Fitness are teaming up to present a summer long REC (Recreation - Education - Culture) program. Each week long session will have a different theme. The clinics will be held daily from 1-4 pm with an optional extended day option available from 4-5:30. Some weeks will be sports themed, some arts & crafts and some special weeks in which we will bring in our friends from the CT Science Center - Weird Science week and our friends from Playhouse on Park for a season ending 2 week program called "We're Putting on a Show" which will culminate in a live performance on the Playhouse stage in West Hartford.

The Miracle League of CT Golf Classic
It's not too late to get your foursome together and come on out for the 2018 Miracle League of CT Golf Classic. The day of golf on Tuesday June 5th at Wampanoag Country Club is the main fundraiser for us each year. The proceeds for the day allow us to offer all that we do for children and young adults with disabilities throughout the year. Please click HERE for more information and to register.
