Hello Miracle League Family!!
I want to bring everyone up to date with where we are as a program and some changes coming on line this spring. First, the 2018 Spring season (our 25th season) will be starting on Saturday, March 24th with registration opening on Wednesday, 2/28.
There will be a registration fee this season; a $25 fee will be charged for each player. We, as a board, have been very proud that we have gone for eleven years without charging a fee for a child to play. Our program currently has an annual budget of over $25,000 and we are currently an all-volunteer organization. We also spent over $150,000 a year ago to replace the playing surface on the field. I have spoken with several leagues around the country and the consensus is for charging to play with the majority being well over $25. In fact, the $25 fee does not cover the hat and jersey costs we currently supply to our players. So all new players will receive the jersey/cap at no charge, but any returning player that would like to purchase a new jersey and/or hat will be charged an additional $10 per jersey and $5 per cap. With that said, we will always accept any family who does not have the ability to pay.
Next, we will be hiring a League Director very soon. All of the volunteers over the years have done an amazing job in making our program one of the best in the country and we are dedicated to maintaining that high standard. It is the decision of the board that to achieve this and move forward into the future, a League Director must be hired. Again, I have spoken with leagues around the country and this is very common within both leagues run by private groups like us and also leagues run by organizations such as municipalities and YMCA’s.
We are very excited as we start yet another season with great Players, Buddies, families, fans and volunteers. As always, we appreciate any feedback and comments and look forward to seeing you all come March 24th.
