Virginia District 7 Challenger League: Welcome

 Virginia District 7 Challenger League is honored to have the responsibility of overseeing the largest baseball program for mentally and physically disabled youth on the Virginia Peninsula.   We welcome all special needs youth ages 5 - 18 (up to 22 if still attending school) from the cities of Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson, and York County. Every child in our program gets to play ball regardless of their abilities or limitations. 

These young men and women enter the gates of the field with no fear, no worries and no envy. The enthusiasm displayed each time they take the field reminds us all what is really important in life.  To never give up, regardless of the challenges we're faced with, is a lesson we should all try to learn.

Twice a week we look forward to participating together in America's pastime. If not but just for a little while, we are all the same. We are all just baseball players, having fun with our teammates and soaking in the wonderful sounds of our biggest fans cheering us on.
