This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The Little League Challenger program allows individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities to enjoy the full benefits of Little League participation in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. However, whenever possible and with reasonable accommodations, youngsters with disabilities should participate in unrestricted league play provided their participation is possible and fair within the standard rules and regulations of Little League. More than the skills of baseball learned through the experience, the value of the Little League Challenger program is found in the proven therapeutic and socialization benefits of participating in sports; the strengthening of the participants’ self-esteem; the opportunities to mainstream into other divisions of play; and the disciplines of teamwork, citizenship, and fair play which are hallmarks of the Little League program.
