Miracle League of Dubuque Participant
Interested in being a volunteer or a buddy for one of our Miracle League of Dubuque programs? Check out the requirements below, and then sign up for one or all six weeks of the program!

Buddy (Ages 12 & Up):

Any qualified individual or group can give individuals with special needs the gift of baseball by volunteering as a Buddy. Our system pairs each player with a helper, and training is provided on-site before your shift begins. Working one-on-one with our players will warm your heart and give you a new perspective on life.

Goals for our Buddies include: 

  • Assist the player according to his/her needs. 
  • Protect the player at all times. 
  • Allow the player as much freedom as possible to play. 
  • Have fun!

Volunteer (Ages 12 & Up): 

Assist at our registration table, or as an announcer, umpire, DJ, or scoreboard operator. Also may help with set-up, tear-down, or the logistics of the games.


  • Volunteers/Buddies must be at least 12 years old. 
  • Volunteers/Buddies must first attend a training session, held on-site before each shift. 
  • Volunteers/Buddies must pre-register for the shift they wish to serve. 
  • Volunteer/Buddy shifts, assigned by the Field Manager, are a minimum of three hours.
