WAUKEE HIGH SCHOOLS’ ANNUAL VOLUNTEER FAIRS

If you’re a Waukee HS student, we hope you stopped by our table at the annual
VOLUNTEER FAIRS–Nov  14 at Waukee HS and Nov 16 at Waukee NW HS.  If you attend a different high school and have similar events, reach out to us if you’d like us to attend.

 YEAR-END HALLOWEEN/TROPHY/PIZZA PARTY

Thanks to ALL of our volunteers who helped with our final event of the year–our annual HALLOWEEN/TROPHY/PIZZA Party!  Friday the 13th.  What a great event–lots of great costumes (many unusual), fun games, treats and prizes, and, of course, pizza and trophies! 

WINTER SHUT DOWN

Our ball park is now “winterized”.  Yes, it takes volunteers to put everything away and shut us down for the winter! Watch here for details when we “unwinterize” next spring!

Become a Coach or Assistant Coach

Interested in becoming a Coach or Assistant Coach for the Kiwanis Miracle League this spring?  It’s time to sign up!  All will need to register for 2024–seasoned coaches as well as new coaches.  

We are seeking three or four more ASSISTANT COACHES to enable us to have at least three assistant coaches on each of our 16 regular teams.  

In a normal season, if you can commit to at least 50% of our eight Saturdays, you’re a good prospect.  And, don’t worry, you don’t have to know a lot about baseball.  What you DO need to have is a desire and passion to work with kids!  A clear background check is required of all coaches and assistant coaches.  We’d love to include you on our coach roster!  Please contact us if you are  have questions.
