The North Andover Booster Club Little League Board of Directors is pleased to announce the introduction of a Little League Challenger Division commencing in the spring of 2014.
The Little League Challenger Division is a program for developmentally and physically challenged youth, helping them to enjoy the full benefits of Little League participation in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. More than the skills of baseball learned through the experience, the value of the Little league Challenger Division is found in the therapeutic and socialization benefits of participating sports; strengthening of participants self esteem; the opportunities to mainstream into other divisions of play and the discipline of teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play, which are hallmarks of the Little League program. The Little League Challenger Division provides the framework so Little League programs may offer a structured, athletic activity for all youth in their communities. Playing with the same equipment on the same fields, Challenger Division participants have the opportunity to experience the joys of pulling together as a team, being cheered and earning awards for their achievements.
Please stay tuned for more information on registration and other details for the Challenger Divison. In the meantime, here is a video that will provide some insight on what the Challenger Division is all about.
