2011 SVLL Challenger Program Introduction
Hello Snoqualmie Valley,
We are excited to announce the launch of Challenger Division Baseball in Snoqualmie Valley.
Challenger is a Little League program to provide baseball to all children with special physical and/or mental needs for ages 5 to 18. Games and practices are adapted to fit the needs of the players so they may participate to the best of their capabilities and learn a little about baseball.
Each player will be assigned one or more "buddies" depending on need. Buddies will be on the playing field with them at all times. A team of coaches will support the players and buddies throughout the season.
Games and practices will be held on Sunday afternoons. This will likely start in mid-to-late April and continue into mid-June. We are fortunate to have other Challenger programs in the area. We look forward to playing some games with them, both at home and on their fields.
All players will be on the field, there is no limit to the number of fielders. Batting is done from a tee, with additional support and modifications if needed. If some players opt to have a coach pitch to them, this may be done as well on a per-batter basis.
What we need from our community to make this successful, at first, is to GET THE WORD OUT! Share the website, the information page, and my email address. We need YOU to make Challenger successful!
If you are interested in supporting Challenger as a coach, a buddy, or a fan, please contact us.

Looking forward to seeing you this year,
Director - Challenger
