Miracle League of Amherstburg launching 2024 registration

Updated: Jan 9

January 9, 2024 -

The Miracle League of Amherstburg is looking for players both its spring and fall seasons in 2024.


The league is doing a formal registration this winter to try and secure its players for the upcoming year. Miracle League president Shawn Dufour said since the current board of directors took over, they had been using registration and information from the previous board.

“This is our first registration as an executive,” said Dufour.


The Miracle League’s website is getting updated and is ready to accommodate the registration from players and parents. Dufour said the cost is $55 per player but that is for spring and fall seasons. The fee will include not only being placed on a team, but for a shirt, hat, bags and sweaters for the players.


“It will include some Miracle League merchandise,” said Dufour.


Last year, there were 160 players on nine teams and Dufour said the goal is to have at least that many players this year. Players from last year will be contacted, he added, and they want to attract new players. Players are both children and adults with intellectual and physical disabilities.


“We’re hoping to maintain (the numbers),” he said. “We can grow a little bit.”

Registration will be strictly online, he said, though payment can be made either online or at the diamond the first game of the spring season. The first games of Miracle League’s 2024 spring season is May 4.


“The payment doesn’t have to come right away,” said Dufour.

Deadline to register is March 1.


“We want to get registration out of the way so we have time to get the uniforms,” he said.

Dufour said Miracle League is “a great social event for the players and a great family atmosphere.” He said it encompasses what sports should be all about, which is the enjoyment of the game.


The Miracle League of Amherstburg is the first in Canada and based out of the Libro Centre. There are eight weeks, weather permitting, in each of the spring and fall seasons with four games per day.
