Challenger Division at NMVLL

The Challenger Division is a separate division of Little League that provides boys and girls with physical, mental and developmental challenges an opportunity to play the game of baseball along with the millions of other children who participate in this sport worldwide. 

The Challenger Division is divided into 2 separate divisions – a Juniors Division and a Seniors Division.  While the specific division the child plays in is driven by their abilities, the typical age for Juniors Division players is 4-12 and Seniors Division players is 13 years old and beyond, with no upper age limit.

Players in the Juniors Division are accompanied during each game by a “buddy” who is a mainstream little leaguer who assists the athlete where necessary in every facet of the game while ensuring a safe and memorable experience for both player and buddy.  The games average two innings, with each player batting and playing in the field each inning. Some hit off the tee, some hit a ball pitched by the coach. No score is kept. The emphasis is on fun, and on the opportunity to learn skills. 

In the Senior Division, the schedule is similar to the Juniors Division, with a few minor rule changes to emphasize advanced skills and game awareness.

The Challenger Division is a unique opportunity for your child with special needs to gain confidence and forge social bonds that will last a lifetime while playing the great game of baseball in a safe and non-competitive environment.
