We are a Proud sponsor of Challenger Division; a Division of Little League Baseball for the physically and developmentally challenged children and young adults.

Why Choose Little League?

Little League offers Baseball and Challenger division programming for boys and girls age 4 to 16 in the Calgary area. Little League is the world's largest youth sports volunteer organization.

A few facts: Over 5,000 children play Little League Baseball in Calgary and surrounding communities.  There are more children per capita playing Little League Baseball in Calgary than in any other city in North America.  The Challenger Division gives our city's physically challenged kids a great setting in which to experience the excitement of playing the game.

So you think Calgary's playing season is too short to produce good ball players?  Chris Reitsma, Tim Nelson, Mike Soroka and Matt Lloyd would disagree.  Chris was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 1st round of the 1996 MLB Draft, Tim was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the 7th round of the 1998 MLB Draft, Mike was drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the 1st round of the 2015 MLB Draft and Matt was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 15th round of the 2019 MLB Draft.  There are many other Canadian (and Calgary area) athletes playing baseball in colleges throughout North America and most have their roots in Little League Baseball.

What's in store for this upcoming season?  A lot of FUN!  Our leagues offer regular house league play each spring, with many weekend tournaments.  Little League Tournament Play (All-Stars) takes place in the summer months after our regular season concludes.  All of the leagues are looking for coaches and umpires.  They provide volunteer screening, clinics and training.  Little League Baseball is the best game in town!
