Challenger Divisions Program Information

Come one, come ALL Let’s play some Baseball ⚾️.

Baseball can be a great adaptive sport for kids; however, baseball is just a piece of what the LNLL Challenger league provides. Not only is this an opportunity for children with physical or mental limitations to participate on a TEAM, but a way to build confidence, friendships and a sense of community while being paired with buddies who play Baseball for LNLL

The Little League Challenger Division Is an adaptive baseball program for boys and girls with physical, intellectual or developmental challenges. PLUS it is so much more!

While it’s a great benefit to get our kiddos out from behind screens and playing outside, it’s the additional benefits that can be truly life changing. Strong friendships are developed on the Jr. teams that continue throughout their lives. We have players on Sr. teams that have built friendships through baseball that have lasted for well over 20 years and counting.

The Buddy program is not only successful at helping to teach adaptive baseball skills, but has also been a great way to integrate our kids into their communities. Our Buddies not only provide modeling and assistance on the baseball field, but they quite frequently recognize, acknowledge, support and encourage our special needs players when they encounter them in the community. 

Our Challenger teams are not designed for competition, but as a welcoming and adaptive place for players of all abilities to develop at their own pace, in a safe and inviting environment.
The games consist of two innings, with each player batting and playing in the field each inning.  Some athletes hit off a tee, some hit a ball pitched by a coach.  All games will be played on Saturdays, with Home games played at Chapparosa Community Park in Laguna Niguel.

There are no league boundaries for this program - all players 5 and up are welcome.

Parent involvement is also welcomed and encouraged. So please sign up today and come help us build a special community where our kiddos can thrive.

A chance for kids to come together as a team and be cheered.
We don't count outs and we don't count runs.
Everybody plays. Everybody scores. WE ALL WIN.
