Challenger Program

Our Reynolds Rockstars after their game at the 2017 Little League Softball World Series. A very special and heartfelt thank you to Rowan Little League of North Carolina for being
the best buddy team that we could ever ask for.


What is the Little League Challenger Program?

The Little League Challenger Program is Little League’s adaptive baseball program for individuals (boys and girls) with physical and intellectual challenges.

Who can participate in the Little League Challenger Program?

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 4-13 in our Junior Division.  The Senior League Challenger Division accommodates players ages 14 and above (no maximum age).

Is there a cost to participate in the Challenger Program?

East County Little League Challenger Program has no registration fee.

What rules are followed during a Challenger game?

Flexibility and adaptability are key during Challenger games.  Typically games are 1-2 innings long and last about an hour. All players play defensively and bat every inning.

What are “buddies” and what role do they have in the Challenger Division?

Buddies are individuals who assist Challenger athletes in the areas of batting, base running and defense, but only as needed.  Buddies are peer athletes that are participating in the East County Little League Baseball or Softball programs.

How many Challenger Programs are currently operating?

There are currently over 950 Challenger programs in 10 countries around the world. Over 30,000 athletes participate in the Challenger Division every year.

How can I get involved with the Challenger Division?

There are many ways for everyone to get involved with the Challenger Division.  Please contact our Challenger Director at [email protected].
