MIKEY'S LEAGUE BELIEVES ALL KIDS SHOULD HAVE THE CHANCE TO BE PART OF A TEAM

Mikey’s League exists to bring our community together through the power of inclusive sports.  We achieve this goal by bringing together our athletes (children and young adults with physical or intellectual disabilities) to compete alongside their peer partners (individuals without disabilities).  We create a genuine team sport experience for all participants with structured practices, intentional coaching, and teams structured so that everyone’s talents can shine.

GET INVOLVED

Mikey’s League believes sports can bring our community together.  Your involvement will bring that mission forward. There are short and long-term volunteer opportunities available including playing alongside our athletes.

Mikey's League
On Saturday, 40 of our athletes with disabilities were fortunate enough to spend the morning at the Arizona Cardinals practice facility playing football with Cardinals players. What a fantastic day… We can’t thank the players and community relations team enough for bringing so much joy with them into this event.One parent commented to me that she had been to many similar events in the past, and it was typically clear that the players were required to be there and just go through the motions. She admitted that she was both surprised and filled with gratitude that the Cardinals were the opposite. The Cardinals players quickly and easily engaged with the kids, making them feel important. If they saw someone struggling, they immediately jumped in to support them. They made the kids feel like they belonged out there with them. I’ve got a folder full of event photos, and it isn’t easy to find one where there isn’t a huge smile on everyone’s faces. The massive practice bubble was filled with cheers, smiles, and laughter. At its core, Mikey's League is just a couple of guys trying to make their community a little bit better. Being recognized by our community leaders and having them not only see our vision but actively participate in it is humbling. Thank you to all of the Cardinals who made this day great!These photos were provided by the Arizona Cardinals.
