The Challenger Division is a division of Little League for boys and girls with physical and mental challenges, ages 4 – 18 (or up to age 22 if still enrolled in high school) to enjoy the game of baseball. We start each game with some easy stretches, and then we move into a game.

As some players need assistance to participate, personal coaches called buddies are available to all players. Buddies help the player bat, field, run the bases, stay safe on the field, and learn the fundamentals of the game.

The goal for the Chicago Little League is to ensure that each player has the opportunity to increase their knowledge and skill of the game while having fun and being part of the team.

When is opening day?

Fall Ball will start the Sunday after labor day weekend which is Sunday September 10th.

How much does it cost?

$50 / player for Summer and $20 for the Fall. However, we will never turn away a family for not being able to play. Please email coach@chichallengers.org for scholarship information!

Who is eligible?

Any child with disabilities ages 4-18 (Up to 22 if they are still in High School). We support all families who live in Chicago and families from the north and northwest suburbs.

What equipment does my child need?

If your child has their own mitt or a bat, feel free to bring it. Howeer, we provide everything that they may need to play ball!
