The Challenger Division of Little

 League is a program for mentally and physically challenged youth, helping them to enjoy the full benefits of participating in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. More than the skills of baseball learned through the experience, the value of the Little League Challenger Division is found in the proven therapeutic and socialization benefits of participating in sports, the strengthening of participants’ self-esteem, the opportunities to mainstream into other divisions of play, and the disciplines of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play. Playing with the same equipment on the same fields, Challenger Division participants have the opportunity to experience the joys of pulling together as a team, being cheered, and earning awards for their achievements.

 

·        The Challenger Division is open to all physically and mentally challenged youth ages 5 through 99. Players wear the same uniforms and safety equipment as all Little League players.

·        Teams are set up according to abilities, rather than age.

·        Everyone participates! Each Challenger player is in the batting order and plays defense the entire game.

·        The Challenger Division encourages the use of "buddies" for the Challenger players in the Tee Ball and Coach- Pitch divisions. The buddies assist the Challenger players on the field but whenever possible, encourage the players to bat and make plays themselves. However, the buddy is always nearby to help when needed. This system has proven very rewarding for both Challenger Players and their Buddies.
