Challenger Division Description


The Challenger Division provides boys and girls with disabilities the opportunity to experience the emotional development and the fun of playing Little league Baseball. This groundbreaking program enables every child the opportunity to participate in a structured athletic program, regardless of their ability.

The Challenger division also helps to establish strong bonds of friendship and understanding between Little Leaguers from other programs and Challenger children in an atmosphere of sharing and caring. In Challenger games, "buddies" help their challenged partners by acting as guides for Challenger children or pushing wheelchair-bound children around the basepaths. This interaction has proven to be a positive experience for all the children involved as Challenger players enjoy the thrill of participation and their "buddies" experience, first-hand, the challenges these children face in their daily lives. The Challenger Division is Little League's way of providing new opportunities for children with disabilities so that everyone can get into the game.

Denison Little League has fielded a Challenger Division for more than 10 years. The response from the players who act as buddies has been overwhelmingly positive and the vast majority of those players want to come back and do it again. Many return even after they have aged out of the league to continue to help their friends in the Challenger Division.
