Challenger Program
Challenger Baseball is a division of Little League set up in 1989 allowing kids with physical or mental restrictions the opportunity to play organized baseball.

District 1 Little League has been involved with, and has supported the Challenger Program from the start and established the first challenger team in Mukilteo. In 2004 it was decided to expand the program and with each new year brought new teams. We currently have nine teams and now have the largest Challenger Division in the State of Washington, and are amongst the stronger Challenger Programs across the nation.

The Challenger teams practice and play games from late March thru June against other teams from District 1 and District 8(Woodinville). The season ends with all of the teams coming together for a "Jamboree" of games, food and awards.

Following are the Challenger Baseball teams in District 1:

Alderwood Admirals
Lake Stevens Vikings
Marysville Mavericks
Marysville Mustangs
Mukilteo Air Force
North Everett Grizzlies
Pacific Pirates
Snohomish Panthers
South Everett Eagles
