Coach Tyler led stretches then League staff, together with 50+ community volunteers, guided kids of all ages through 1/4 and 1/2 mile courses. We had so much fun!

A look back at our 2014 baseball season (and our old logo!) Don't forget - our new adult weeknight baseball season starts February  29th and registration is only open until February 15th! Our adult program is for athletes with autism and other developmental disabilities aged 18 - 32. #flashbackfriday #baseballlife #specialneeds
Our last night of bowling for Spirit League's 2024 bowling season for our program for adult athletes. What a great time!! #bowlingtime #funtimes #specialneeds
So much ahead. February is a busy month at Spirit League, with the adult bowling clinic coming to a close and our 1st adult baseball season starting. Youth baseball is ongoing each Saturday, and three new staff members have been training and will join us. 

We are leading the kids' races at the Oso Fit 5k in Mission Viejo on the 24th and gearing up for our HUGE 20th-anniversary event in June. Our Board of Directors will meet to adopt the next phase of our Strategic Plan plus we’re moving forward with two grant applications. 

Oh, did we mention that registration for youth basketball is this month? Whew. It’s going to be good.#nonprofitlife #specialneedssports #20years

One of our favorite things about Spirit League is that athletes with autism and other special needs, have an opportunity to play without all the extra pressure of keeping score or trying to keep up with their peers in traditional youth sports leagues. #morethanthescore #specialneedssports #autismmom
