URBANDALE PARKS & RECREATION

ADULT SPORTS LEAGUES Fall Miracle League

The Miracle League is a FREE baseball/softball league for children with special needs from age 5 – 18 and adults 19 and older. The Miracle League is just like baseball. Players will bat, round the bases, catch, throw, and hit Home Runs! There are a few differences in how the game is played. • Each player has a buddy that gets to assist them. • Each player will bat once each inning. • Every player is safe, no one is out. • Every player will score a run before the inning is over. • The last player up hits a HOME RUN. • Every game ends in a tie. • A game will last two innings or an hour. • Special rubberized playing surface. Urbandale Parks and Recreation will assign players to teams after registration is complete. Each team will need at least two parent coaches. Registration Deadline: August 12 Season August 25 – October 6

NEW! Munio Self- Defense Workshop (ages 8 and up)

A MUNIO Self-Defense Workshop is a great way to be safer and better prepared if you are confronted with the epidemic of violence and a sexual assault that threatens us all.
