Adaptive baseball for children and adults with special needs in Waterloo Region
We continue to follow the advice and guidance of our local and provincial government and health agencies as we set our sights on the 2021 Buddy League season. While we're not sure what it will look like yet, we commit to keeping our athletes, volunteers, families and communities safe and updated as we work out the details.
If you are new to our program, or are considering coming out for the first time as an athlete or volunteer, please send us an email introducing yourself and we'll keep you up-to-date on our 2021 Buddy League season.
We look forward to the day when we can once again yell "PLAY BALL!" and celebrate the success of all of our athletes. Until that time, stay home... stay safe... and take care of each other.
What is Buddy League?
Simply put, Buddy League is baseball for everyone.
From the players and buddies on the diamond to the families and fans in the bleachers, Buddy League is something for everybody.
Buddy League is an adaptive baseball program that provides children and adults (ages 5+) with the opportunity to play baseball in a safe, supportive, and friendly environment.
In Buddy League, you don't need to know how to throw the ball, hit a homerun, or catch a fly ball, but by the end of the season, you'll have done all of that and so much more.
Buddy League teams are divided into skill levels as best we can to ensure everyone has a fun and rewarding experience each week.
Buddy League Canada is inspired by The Buddy League out of Garland, Texas.
Opening Day 2021
There's nothing like Opening Day. From the smell of the fresh cut grass to that first crack of the bat, there's just something special about taking the field for the first time.
Stay tuned for Opening Day 2021 details...
Be a Buddy
We're currently looking for volunteers for our 2021 Buddy League season. If you, or someone you know is looking for an incredibly rewarding experience, shoot us an e-mail... we'd love to talk with you.
Buddies don't need any experience working with individuals with special needs. They just need heart, and the willingness to be involved and help out. Think you've got what it takes...
