SPMBA started our Challenger Baseball program in 2018 and is really looking forward to the upcoming season.
What is Challenger Baseball?
Challenger Baseball is an adaptive baseball program designed specifically to empower children and youth living with cognitive and/or physical disabilities. The program is designed to teach these children and youth the core life-skills inherent to baseball, including: teamwork, communication, determination, resiliency, inclusion, support and courage. This unique partnership between Baseball Canada, Little League Canada and Jays Care Foundation and now SPMBA, is creating opportunities for more children to be a part of a team.
With the help of "Buddies" who are assigned on a one for one basis for each participant, Games are played in a safe environment where the focus is on having fun instead of keeping score. The program is offered for kids aged 5-18.
The program is open to children from Sherwood Park, Ardrossan, Strathcona County and also surrounding towns/cities as well. We do not want to turn any children away. Please pass the information on to anyone you think would be interested in this program.
We encourage everyone who as a child with cognitive and/or physical disabilities to come out and see what the program is about before deciding if the program is for them or not.
