Please use the Register button below the description to register for 2022 Little League Challenger
The Darien Little League’s Challenger Division is a program that enables developmentally and physically-challenged youth to enjoy the full benefits of Little League participation in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. In its 19th year, Darien’s Challenger Division is one of the largest in Connecticut. SOFTBALL and BASEBALL players PLEASE DO NOT REGISTER for this program.
The philosophy is to give all children the chance to play baseball in a setting that is fun and supportive. A big part of this, for the players, is to experience the sense of belonging that comes with being a part of a team, as well as the spirit of friendly competition through games with other Challenger teams from neighboring towns. In Challenger baseball, scores don’t count - everybody is a winner. It’s all about acceptance, self-esteem, positive learning experiences and team spirit.
The Challenger Division is open to all challenged players, 5 to 18 years of age, in the towns of Darien and New Canaan.
The program fee, per player, is $50 for the Winter 2022 season, which runs January through March, and $150 for the Spring 2020 season, which runs April through June. Scholarships are available upon request - contact Mike Donoghue by email or call 203-858-7327.
