St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Spirit League is for children who are physically active (ambulatory), and have the emotional ability to participate — but have difficulty keeping up with their peers. We emphasize the learning of basic sports skills and physical fitness for higher functioning but developmentally challenged boys and girls, ages 6-20+ years, in southern Orange County, California. For our athletes, our goal is to foster self-esteem, enhance social skills and build friendships. For our families, our goal is to strengthen relationships, provide support and develop community.
Spirit League is a safe place where your athlete can be him or herself.
