Challenger Baseball provides an opportunity for children and teenagers with cognitive or physical disabilities to enjoy the thrill of playing baseball, to be part of a team, to develop physical and social skill plus all the benefits of participation in baseball at a level structured to their abilities.
Individuals develop a sense of belonging, lasting friendships are built and strengthened and the level of fun and enjoyment of life is enhanced. Buddies assist players during the game, however, the priority of the buddies is to encourage the player to participate to the maximum of their ability. Baseball rules are adapted as required to match players' abilities so that participation and teamwork are emphasized.
Challenger games are played in a fun, safe environment where no score is kept. Our philosophy is very simple: 'Play, just for fun!!'
The Brampton Challenger Baseball program is run by a group of dedicated volunteers.
