A special league for special kids
The Miracle League of the Chippewa Valley, a program of Goodwill NCW, gives children with disabilities the opportunity to play baseball at an accessible facility while building relationships, engaging socially with others and learning important life skills.
Games are played at the fully accessible field located at Jeffers Road Park in Eau Claire, Wis.
The mission of the league: Every child deserves the chance to play baseball.

- Families: Find a network of accepting parents and new friends who share a common goal where their child’s abilities are celebrated.
- Siblings: Feel sense of pride for a brother or sister who is playing an organized sport, just like they do. It provides a common bond.
