Build the Field of Dreams

Our Story 

Our community has supported our special needs athletes for over two years. Our first season, we started with three athletes and this season we welcomed 32 athletes to the field. This summer, the Screaming Eagles Special Needs Athletic Team was hatched. This organization is a non-profit 501c3 and is open to special needs athletes of all ages and all abilities. We work with our local schools and surrounding colleges to create a realistic athletic environment that is adapted to meet the needs of all. 

Our Vision Statement 

"Our goal is to provide an environment of inclusion for our special needs athletes and promote community involvement. This is facilitated through traditional sports where local community can engage appropriately and individually with our athletes." 

As one community member recently said, "The compassion, perservance, and heart in your athletes give me hope that sports are something that can unite so many people to do good; to love; and to hope." 

Our Dream 

Our first goal is to obtain land to be the home for a miracle field for the special needs community. This field will be designed to accomodate all ages and all abilities. 

The long range plan is to build an outdoor shelter, dugouts, an announcer box, a playground with paved trails, and large indoor facility. The indoor facility will be used for games that are rained out, end of the season celebrations, afterschool care, and serve as an adult day activities center for the special needs community. We are currently working with a group of infrastructure engineers and are in the concept phase of developing our vision of the Field of Dreams.
