The Miracle League of Dubuque Baseball League serves children and adults who suffer from any physical or mental disabilities, which causes them to be excluded, whether intentionally or not, from conventional baseball leagues. The program is free and both spring and fall leagues are available.

Adult sports like softball and volleyball, have leagues of varying skill; competitive, intermediate, and recreational. Loads of options and places to provide all your favorite activities; like our local swimming pools, the multicultural family center, miracle league and more. In addition, Bunker Hill has many different opportunities to get active for the whole family.

Speaking of family, the Leisure Services Department does provide up to 200 qualifying low-income families with $125 scholarship credit which can be used for program registration, pavilion rentals, and other services that are provided through the department. Any approved applicant may use their credits upon completion of the application process. For any scholarship funds that are still out for Winter/Spring 2022, they expire on June 30th.
