The mission of The Miracle League of Northampton Township is to enrich the community by providing education and social development through high quality recreation facilities and programs for individuals with special needs and their families.
They serve over 250 individuals with disabilities from across Bucks County and neighboring communities.
Their programs include:
- Softball/Baseball – The baseball season runs from April to June at the Northampton Township Municipal Park in Churchville. Registration will begin in March. Games take place on the specially designed Miracle League baseball field, which provides access for those with physical and developmental disabilities. Each year, they cap off the season with a weekend-long baseball festival held at the George School.
- Basketball – Operates on Mondays, from November through March, at Welch Elementary School.
- Bowling – Operates on Saturdays, from September through March, at Thunderbird Lanes in Warminster.
- Soccer – In partnership with CRUSA (Council Rock United Soccer Association), the soccer program is offered for six weeks in September and October on the Miracle League Turf field at the Northampton Township Municipal Park in Churchville.
In addition to their athletic programs, they often provide social events for members as well as a resource/information fair for families to explore opportunities and support for their disabled loved ones. In 2022, the Miracle League of Northampton Township and Northampton Township completed improvements to the already-popular playground at the Municipal Park.
The Miracle League Playground welcomes children and families of all abilities to learn, play and grow together.
