Challenger Baseball Division Information
Registration in this division is open to any child aged 4-18 An opportunity for children with cognitive or physical disabilities to enjoy the thrill of playing baseball, being part of a team, developing physical and social skill plus all the benefits of participation in baseball at a level structured to their abilities. Games are played in a fun, safe environment where no score is kept. We plan to “buddy” each player up with a volunteer if needed and are inviting some of our own older players to help if they would like to.
This division schedule is TBD at Sault Park times will be from 6:30 to approximately 7:30 beginning in the first week of May and running to our ball weekend. Each game night will be approximately 45 minutes of “drills and fun activities” with 15 minutes of game time.
As far as the game goes, each individual player will decide if they want to hit from a tee or have the ball pitched to them. We will use a softer ball than usual as I am sure we will have a difficult time getting some of the players to wear their helmet. Other than that, it will be a standard softball game with very flexible rules.
We have made up a “My Softball Story” for each player to receive before the season to help them to understand what will be happening.
To find out more information or to register, families can visit our website (www.hmsoftball.com). If they are registering for the adapted division they can note that in the comments box at the bottom of the online form.
