Description

The Miracle League of Ottawa is a baseball program for children, youth, and adults of all abilities. Volunteers are what helps keep our wonderful program running and we would love to have you join the team! As a volunteer with the Miracle League of Ottawa, you would most likely be in the role of a player buddy. Player buddies ensure that our players can move around the field freely and are enjoying their time playing baseball. Player buddies can assist with pushing player's wheelchairs, directing them to the bases, helping them bat, etc. Public transit to the field is not available as we are located in Navan, however we can now offer free Lyft ride credits to our volunteers.
