Challenger Baseball

When you belong, you believe

Calling all Blue Jays fans! Niagara Children's Centre is bringing back one of its most popular summer activities for a new season.

Challenger Baseball, a non-competitive form of the traditional sport, is in association with the Jays Care Foundation. Designed to be grassroots and non-competitive for athletes of all abilities, the sport creates a safe and inclusive environment for all participants with a series of fully adaptable drills and skills followed by a friendly game. Like all activities hosted by Niagara Children's Centre, they're designed around the F-Words for Child Development framework, with a focus on fun, friends, family, and fitness.

Children and youth aged three years and up, living with a range of physical, developmental and communicative delays are invited to register for the new season, starting Monday, May 27.
