  • Welcome to Edmonton Challenger Baseball Little League

    The Challenger Baseball Little League is designed as a league for children with physical and mental disabilities to play, and enjoy baseball. The Challenger League was established internationally in 1989 and now serves more than 30 000 children worldwide in more than 900 locations. The Challenger League began in Edmonton in 2007 with 10 players and by 2008 grew to 25 players. The program is run by passionate volunteers who are eager to spread their love of baseball to others. New players are welcomed to join a spirited team of athletes that play with passion, drive and motivation.

    Players

    Challenger baseball is for boys and girls age 6 to 16, with a physical or developmental disability. We adapt the game to your needs so that you, the athlete can thrive. Whether using a wheelchair or walker, buddy system or just requiring a little more encouragement, we can all play together. The Challenger Program focuses on encouraging teamwork, respect for the game and respect for others.

    Parents

    Parents are asked to attend each session and are encouraged to participate in the game with their child; however, there will be a number of volunteers who will buddy up players and help as much as needed. All family members are welcome to join in and help make the more enjoyable for everyone.

    Volunteers

    Challenger Baseball is supported by its volunteer coaches and buddies. The coaches for the Challenger Program have had many years coaching experience at various levels of baseball. Furthermore, the coaches have had numerous years playing at both low and high levels of baseball. The buddy system allows players to get one on one coaching and if needed, assistance in playing the game.

    The program runs January through March . We play every Sunday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. at Kinsmen Sports Centre Fieldhouse

    Cost

    The cost of the program is $100.00; it includes a college level coach and use of the indoor fieldhouse.
