Special Needs

challenger-bballBy Scott Neal

The Challenger Division of Little League is a program for children with special needs(boys & girls ages 5 – 18), helping them to enjoy the full benefits of Little League participation in an athletic environment structured to their abilities.

Spotsylvania County Little League offers Challenger Baseball to youth with disabilities in Spotsylvania County AND surrounding communities. The Spring 2011 season marks the fifth year for its Challenger Baseball Program. High school baseball players from Courtland H.S. and Spotsylvania H.S. have provided "Buddies" for the Challenger Division challenger-bball2players during previous seasons and plan to continue their volunteer work this season. Buddies pair up with the Challenger players to provide safety, instruction, and help with batting, fielding, and base running. Games are played on Saturday mornings starting late March and continue through mid-June.

Registration for Challenger Baseball is now open for Spotsylvania County Little League's Spring 2011 season. There are two ways to register:
1) Online (go to spotsyll.org and click on "Register Online")
2) In-Person (go to spotsyll.org and see the schedule for in-person registrations)

Now CHS is looking to find adoptive families in the area who need support before they hit a crisis point. “It doesn’t matter which agency they adopted from, or when that happened,” said Buckheit. “We want to offer a lifetime of support to adoptive families in the Fredericksburg area, especially those who haven’t been aware of our services in the past.”
