    Overview

    The Buddy League's mission is to provide recreational opportunities for children with special needs who would ordinarily be excluded. This league is unique in that it allows the children to learn about sports and the fundamentals alongside their non-disabled peer buddies.

    The Buddy League was founded in 2002 to provide recreational opportunities for children with special needs who would ordinarily be excluded. The league currently is providing Baseball. This league is unique in that it allows the children to learn about sports and the fundamentals alongside their non-disabled peer buddies. Team sports provide opportunities for building social skills, self esteem, and peer relationships. The players are not the only ones who win here. The "Buddies" learn just as much. They see enthusiasm, determination, tolerance, joy, and unconditional love at every Buddy event. There are no games protested here. There is no rivalry here. If you need a high five, a kiss, or a hug at homeplate, you'll find it here. Everyone involved wins here.
