COME SHARE IN THE MIRACLE
CHALLENGER DIVISION BASEBALL
District 18 Challenger Division is designed for children with special needs.
Established in 1993, the District 18 Challenger Little League travels to all Little Leagues in the county playing on weekends. Children with special needs, aged 5-21, are eligible to play. “Buddies” are provided for those that need them.
Our Mission: Challenger is a division of Little League designed to give children with special needs the opportunity to succeed at playing baseball in a program geared to them, where winning is not a concern but making each player feel like a champion is the top priority. Challenger's primary goal is to allow each child to experience the joy of being on a team where their special needs are met in a safe playing environment.
