Nevada District 1-Challenger Little League-Reno, Nevada: Welcome

Nevada District 1-Challenger Little League-Reno, Nevada

The Challenger Division of Little League Baseball is a program for mentally and physically challenged youth, helping them to enjoy the full benefits of Little League participation 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 participant's self-esteem, the opportunities to mainstream into other divisions of play, and the disciplines of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play, which are hallmarks of the Little League program.  The Little League Challenger Division provides the framework so Little League programs may offer a structured, athletic activity for all youth in their communities.  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 fundamental goal of Challenger is to give everyone a chance to play! For ages 4-21. (On April 30, 2011)
