CHALLENGER DIVISION

 

This league is specifically designed for boys and girls ages 4‐18. The Challenger Division of Little League is a program for mentally and physically disabled youth to enjoy the full benefits of Little League participation in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. However, whenever possible and with reasonable accommodations, disabled youngsters should participate in unrestricted league play provided their participation is possible and fair within the standard rules and regulations of Little League. 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 the participants’ self‐esteem, the opportunities to mainstream into other divisions of play and the disciplines of teamwork, citizenship and fair play which are hallmarks of the Little League program.
