LITTLE LEAGUE CHALLENGER DIVISION

Coventry Little League will be offering its second year of the Challenger Division! The Challenger Division was established in 1989 as a separate division of Little League Baseball to enable boys and girls with physical and/or mental challenges age 4-21 (or until completion of high school) to enjoy the game of baseball along with the millions of the other children who participate in this sport worldwide.


The season will begin in March with games from April to mid-June. Games are held on Sundays at 1pm. There will be four home games and four away games. Practice is held once a week for an hour. Every year, teams from District 27 and District 28 participate in an event called Challenger Day. This is a great day for all the teams to meet and play baseball.


The game is comprised of three innings. Each player gets a chance to bat, either by tee-ball or pitch. The side is retired when the offense has batted through the roster. The Challenger players wear the same uniforms, shoulder patches and safety equipment as the other Little League players.


One of the benefits of having a Challenger Division is that it encourages the use of "buddies" for the Challenger players. The buddies assist the Challenger players on the field, but whenever possible, encourage the players to bat and make plays for themselves.


Parents and children are strongly encouraged to become involved in this division of Little League. Parents may become buddies after completing a Little League volunteer application and passing a required national background check

The registration fee for the Challenger Division is $25 per player

Please see our website at www.coventryll.org for registration.
