Waukee’s Triumph Park and its Greater Iowa Credit Union Miracle League® Field will open in June. In future seasons, the Miracle League at Triumph Park will serve hundreds of baseball players with special needs, providing them the chance to experience America's favorite pastime without barriers.

“The Parks & Recreation Department is extremely excited to be taking registrations for the City’s first ever Miracle League,” said Assistant Parks & Recreation Director Josh VandeKamp. “We look forward to opening day and seeing all of the kids playing ball on the Greater Iowa Credit Union Miracle League Field.”

All kids ages 5-19 with special needs – whether physical, emotional, social or cognitive – wanting to play baseball/softball on a non-competitive, coed team are eligible to play in this league. This year's adjusted league dates are June 4-25. Games will be played on Saturdays. Registration for the 2022 Miracle League at Triumph Park season is open online through Waukee Parks & Rec under “Register for Activities” and then “Youth Sports”.

Miracle League teams play on a custom-designed, rubberized turf field which accommodates wheelchairs and other assistive devices while helping to prevent injuries. Each player will be partnered with a volunteer “buddy”. Volunteer buddies and coaches are needed. Learn more and submit a volunteer application.
