The Little League Challenger Division was founded in 1989

An adaptive softball program for individuals from ages 4-26

Our Kalamazoo, District 2, Challenger Little League teams are set up according to ability, rather than age, and can include as many as 15-20 players. Our games are played on the Ryan Walker field as part of the Milwood Little League. Our games are played as a combination of t-ball and coach pitch. Our league enables every athlete, regardless of ability, the opportunity to participate in a structured athletic program which helps to promote and strengthen self-esteem, disciplines of teamwork, citizenship and fair play- which are hallmarks of the National Little League Program.

​Currently, District 2 consists of 2 teams in each of the following divisions:

Advanced
No community volunteer assistance needed; Coach pitch

Intermediate
Some community volunteer assistance needed; Coach pitch

Beginner
More community volunteer assistance needed: Combination of tee hitting and Coach pitch

Challenger Little League of Kalamazoo is mostly funded by the kindness of our community and sponsors.

Donations help to keep our player registration fee low and affordable for parents, while providing players with uniforms, equipment purchases, and field maintenance.  We recently made upgrades to our field at Milwood Little League, that gave our wheelchair players greater access to the fields. Thank you for your support of Challenger Little League. We invite all of you to come see for yourself, how amazing our players are and how much Challenger Little League means to them.
