Player Registration

Player Registration

Details Soon to be Announced for 2021!


Watch for registration details!

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.  Regardless if you registered previously, you will need to register for the 2021 activities.

We don’t know when we’ll be able to play in 2021.
However, we want you to get registered so that we’re prepared to play when public health conditions allow.  For registration, we’re using the same online service as in prior years, called SportsEngine.   So, if you wish to register your player for 2021, you can 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


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 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  

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 play in 2021.  If you know of a company or individual who might be interested in being a 2021 Team Sponsor, please let us know at  Further details are available here on our web site–just return to the home page and click on “Become a Team Sponsor”.

Kiwanis is all about kids–and what a great way to support kids and community through the Kiwanis Miracle League at Principal Park.  If you’re interested in more information about Kiwanis, please contact Jan Burch, president, Kiwanis Miracle League board of directors, at 515.457.7691 or
