It’s time to register for our 2020 Spring Season!
All kids with special needs who want to play ball on a non-competitive co-ed team are eligible! And if you’re a first time player,19 and over, you may be interested in playing on one of our adult teams. We’re adding the Washington Nationals as our 3rd adult team.
If you played in a previous year and you want to play spring and/or fall ball, YOU MUST REGISTER YOUR PLAYER. We cannot order uniforms nor allow a player to play without an online registration. Walk-ons are accepted but not encouraged, and still will be required to register online. If you registered for the 2019 Seasons, you will now need to register for the 2020 Spring Season. Registration for the 2020 Fall Season will be handled separately.
Our 2020 Spring Season will begin Saturday, May 9.. Our spring schedule lineup will be different from past years–each week the 9 AM game will be a “double up” game. All other game slots will be normal. However, by adding another adult team, two of the three adult teams will have a double header each week. Check the new schedule closely. Our season will conclude on Saturday, June 27. The complete SPRING play schedule will be posted on the PLAYERS section of this web site.
For registration, we’re using the same online service as in prior years, called SportNGin. So, if you wish to register your player for our 2020 Spring Season, you will soon be able to click here or copy and paste into your browser (we recommend Chrome):
Yes, we are striving to be paperless. If you do not have access to the Internet, hopefully you have a friend or relative who can assist you in registering your player online. If all else fails, please contact Joyce Byrne, player committee chair at firstname.lastname@example.org
We also continue to get questions as to how the Kiwanis Miracle League is like or different from the Pioneer League or the Challenger League which have been playing in Des Moines for many years. Thanks to Jim Sanders, who is the director of the Pioneer League and a past member of the Kiwanis Miracle League Board of Angels, we have a comparison of the three leagues. Please click on 2011 Comparison of Three Leagues for more information.
Please also know that we a separate entity from other Miracle Leagues in the area. We are managed solely by volunteers under the Kiwanis name. Our facility maintenance, concessions, registration, volunteers, teams, etc. are all completely separate as the KIWANIS MIRACLE LEAGUE AT PRINCIPAL PARK.
If you have any questions, again, please contact Joyce Byrne at joycelbyrne@aol..com or 515.208.0822 (cell) or leave a message at 515.280.5017 (our Miracle League #). We will get back to you. Or email us at email@example.com.
We continue to actively recruit team sponsors for our 2020 seasons. Because of the generosity of our Team Sponsors, we again anticipate no cost for League play in 2020. If you know of a company or individual who might be interested in being a 2020 Team Sponsor, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Further details are available here on our web site–just return to the home page and click on “Become a Team Sponsor”.
