The “Buddy” System: Make a New Friend. Gain a New Perspective.

One of the most important parts of the league is the “Buddy” system — pairing each player with a volunteer helper. This is a wonderful opportunity to spend some time on the field helping a player maximize the joy of their experience. Helping these kids will warm your heart and give you a new perspective on life.

Goals for The Miracle League of High Point “Buddies” are simple:

  • To protect the player at all times.
  • To assist the player according to their needs.
  • To allow the player as much freedom as possible to play.
  • To have fun.

Become a buddy and you will be amazed by how much you are needed and cherished by the kids and their families. We promise you will witness a miracle and meet a new friend for life!
