A Miracle League Field

A regional Miracle League Field will be located behind the Flanders Elementary School in East Lyme, CT, serving families from Southern CT and Rhode Island.

A celebration of miracles: Field Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

On Sunday, September 13, a small group celebrated the soft opening of The Miracle League of Southeastern field, located in East Lyme. A bigger grand opening ceremony will be planned when Covid-19 is under control, and larger groups are allowed to gather. We wanted to recognize our Grand Slam Sponsors before children were able to enjoy the field!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank not only our Grand Slam Sponsors, but also everyone in all the communities of Southeastern CT, for making this dream a reality!!
Grand Slam Sponsors donated 25,000 or more to the MLSECT:
  • Niantic Rotary Club
  • Niantic Main Street
  • Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation
  • Miracle League of CT
  • Carl and Sue Putnam
  • Eastern CT Chamber of Commerce Foundation
  • Kevin’s Kourt
  • Mohegan Tribe
Thank you all and we can’t wait to have a big, amazing celebration in the future!

In 2017, the East Lyme Parks and Recreation Department has joined forces with the Miracle League of CT to build a Miracle League field on the school grounds of the Flanders Elementary School for children with disabilities from across the region.
Fundraising began in November of 2017 to raise $550,000 necessary to complete construction of the field, which is the first of two phases. In December 2019, through capital campaigns, various fundraisers and the dedication of a great group of volunteers, the organization had enough funds to move forward with making the field a reality. The groundbreaking for the field happened in March 2020.

The Miracle League of Southeastern Connecticut will operate independently, but will continue our affiliation with the Miracle League of CT. By fostering this continuous relationship, we will greatly enhance our ability to serve children with disabilities and their families from across the State of CT and neighboring States!

This is an extended field which accommodates other sports such as soccer, flag football and lacrosse on the rectangular portion of the field.  Future plans (Phase 2) include an accessible playground and a restroom facility.
