The specially made Miracle Fields are all-weather and obstacle-free to help prevent injuries to players and allow those in wheelchairs to move around regardless of weather.

Participants must be 5 years or older and the cost to participate is $30, though the league is willing to work with players and parents so that everyone has a chance to play.
