The Miracle League of El Paso has been working on expanding the types of sports we have available for individuals to play. That way there are more options for different sports, staying busy, while having fun and socializing throughout the year. We now have available bowling, soccer, basketball, and kickball.
Our bowling program takes place at Oasis Lanes 1660 N. Zaragosa, every Thursday night at 6:30pm. Participants can bowl for one dollar per game. The fee for the rental shoes is waived. This program is not affiliated with Special Olympics and is open to any person with disabilities. For more information contact the Miracle League office (915)779-4770.
We partnered recently with the Paso Del Norte Soccer Association to provide TOP soccer to individuals with disabilities.
