The West Metro Miracle League program is run by a staff of dedicated volunteers, and we are always looking for more help. Here are a few ways that YOU can help:
Buddies – For both baseball and basketball, our athletes are paired up with a “Buddy” to help lead the way. Kids ages 11 and up are our best fit for this program. Typically we use full teams (10+ players) for baseball, but basketball if perfect for individual helpers. See below for more details.
Coaches – Volunteers from High School age to seniors are welcome to come out and help us coach all of our sports! No experience is necessary. We are always looking for “adults” to help us keep everything under control. This looks great on college resumes! See below for more details.
Director of the Day (Baseball only) – Some of our kids’ favorite parts of the baseball program is the music and starting line-ups. If you are a High School or College Student, who loves to do “Play-by-play” this is the job for you. See below for more details.
Description of each Volunteer Opportunity
Being a buddy is the most fun way to make a huge impact in the lives of our Miracle League athletes. Let’s face it, we all need a little help in life, and being a buddy helps our kids play just like you! We prefer buddies to be ages 11 and up. You will be paired up with an athlete and given some directions and hints at the time of the game or clinic. Your job is to keep them safe, help them play and have fun, and maybe even teach them some sports skills along the way.

Coaches/Assistant Coaches/Managers needed
We are looking for volunteers age 16 and up who would like to be a team manager or assistant coach for one of the Miracle League Sports.
Perhaps you played baseball or basketball in the past, but decided it’s not a great fit anymore?
Or, maybe you love the sport but doesn’t see yourself as a player?
Maybe you were a Miracle League player – and they still want to be part of the action?
No matter the reason, we’d love to have them be part of our team!
