    2019 Little League Challenger Division® Jamborees to Provide Unique Opportunities to Children Across North America

    This year, hundreds of Little Leaguers® with physical and intellectual challenges will receive a unique opportunity to participate in a Little League Challenger Division® Jamboree, a volunteer-hosted event that provides players the experience of a tournament atmosphere.

    “Each year, our dedicated volunteers work hard to provide members of our Challenger Division with the unique opportunity to experience the thrill of a Little League tournament while joining together with other members of the community to host an event filled with fun, socialization, and unique memories,” said Sam Ranck, Little League Director of the Challenger Division. “Our Jamboree events provide lifelong memories to not only the participants, but to all of the volunteers who help make the event so special. We are thankful for all the dedication and support that goes into these Jamborees, and hope all of our participants enjoy their time on and off the field this year.”

    From Opening Ceremony festivities to a variety of fun and games available to participants, each of the Little League Challenger Division Jamborees provide a unique experience for players, coaches, buddies, and volunteers.

    What a GREAT time we had at yesterday's Opening Day in Pinole. 
    We had the pleasure of twisting & painting all the players and boy were there a lot of em. Could NOT be more grateful to Stephanie from @dynamicfaces4u for being the rockstar that she is and attending this event with us. She not only painted faces, but brought her balloons just incase Matt needed a hand. She is a machine and an amazing talent. We love her to pieces.

    Managers and Coaches Online Registration


    The Little League® manager and coach must be leaders. All must recognize that they hold a position of trust and responsibility in a program that deals with a sensitive and formative period of a child’s development.

    It is required that the manager and coach have understanding, patience and the capacity to work with children. The manager and coach should be able to inspire respect. Above all else, managers and coaches must realize that they are helping to shape the physical, mental and emotional development of young people.

    The league president selects and appoints the managers and coaches. As such, no person becomes a manager or coach without the approval of the president. All appointments are subject to final approval by the local league’s board of directors.
