PINOLE HERCULES LITTLE LEAGUE

PINOLE HERCULES LITTLE LEAGUE

Challenger Division

The Little League Challenger Division® was founded in 1989, and is Little League’s adaptive baseball program for individuals with physical and intellectual challenges.

Any individual with a physical or intellectual challenge may participate. If an individual can participate in the traditional Little League Baseball or Softball program with reasonable accommodations they should do so. The Little League Challenger Division accommodates players ages 4 to 18; or up to age 22 if still enrolled in school. The Senior League Challenger Division accommodates players ages 15 and above (no maximum age).

Flexibility and adaptability are key during Challenger games. Little League provides all chartered teams with a rulebook that includes a best practices guide to operating a Challenger Game. Typically games are 1-2 innings long and last about an hour. All players play defensively and bat every inning.

Challenger Divisions by Age

The local league will establish the age structure and levels of play for the Little League Challenger Division based upon the ages and abilities of the participants.

·         Players who are league age 4-18 are eligible to be selected to a Little League Challenger Division team. If a player is still in school and the league is not operating a Senior League Challenger Division, a local league may allow players up to age 22.

·         Players who are league age 15-above, and who have aged out of the Little League Challenger Division are eligible to be selected to a Senior League Challenger Division team.
