Adaptive baseball for children and adults with special needs in Waterloo Region
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 runs Wednesday and Thursday evenings between 6 - 8 p.m.
at A. Wayne Taylor Park in Cambridge.
Buddy League CHALLENGER DIVISION runs Saturday mornings between 10 - 11:30 a.m.
in July and August at A. Wayne Taylor Park in Cambridge.
Buddy League Canada is inspired by The Buddy League out of Garland, Texas.
Opening Day 2019
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.
After a few weeks of Spring Training at the end of May, Buddy League will take to the field behind Saginaw Public School in Cambridge on June 8, 2019 for Opening Day, and what a celebration it will be. Every player, volunteer, fan, and sponsor will play a part in making this an Opening Day to remember.

Be a Buddy
We're currently looking for volunteers for our 2019 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...
