Miracle League March Magic



Join us for our first ever Miracle League March Magic event on March 5th from 1:00pm-3:00pm! We are inviting our athletes with special needs to join us for a day of basketball fun with their buddies at the Petaluma Boys and Girls Club. Our players will have the opportunity to practice/learn basketball skills through a variety of drills and then get to show them off during the scrimmage at the end of the day! Our athletes do not need any level of experience to join this event. We accept all ability and enthusiasm levels! We always encourage our athletes to play the game, or participate in the drills, but we also love to support them in simply socializing and creating connections with other participants. Everyone is welcome! 


Our Buddy system pairs each special needs player with a volunteer helper that remains with them for the duration of the event. The buddy is there to protect the player from balls, assist the player in basketball skills, help maneuver them around the court (if needed), and to be a friend throughout the event. Buddies are responsible for their individual player from the time of introduction until the player is back in the care of their parent/guardian. This means that no matter where their player goes the buddy must go. Buddies need to be energetic, committed and enthusiastic! Buddies do not need to have any knowledge or skills related to basketball. We ask that all buddies be at least 12 years old and are available from 12:15pm - 3:30pm. If you have volunteered with us in the past, please wear your MLNB buddy or volunteer shirt! 


Please come sit in the stands and cheer our athletes on!
