The Little League Challenger Division® was founded in 1989, and is Little League’s adaptive baseball program for individuals with physical and intellectual challenges.
Any individual with a physical or intellectual challenge may participate. If an individual can participate in the traditional Little League Baseball or Softball program with reasonable accommodations they should do so. The Little League Challenger Division accommodates players ages 4 to 18; or up to age 22 if still enrolled in school. The Senior League Challenger Division accommodates players ages 15 and above (no maximum age).
Ultimately, CNLL’s goal is to offer every child the opportunity to participate in the sport of baseball regardless of ability and limitations. During the spring season, many of the Major’s Division play against the various Challenger’s teams to allow these players the greatest playing experience they can have. During the fall season, many of the local high school baseball teams come out to give our Challenger’s teams the joys of playing this great game!
