Be a Challenger Buddy!

By WULL, 01/29/13, 4:45PM CST


What is Challenger?
The West University LL Challenger Division is a baseball league for kids ages 5-18 with physical or mental challenges. Each player is assigned a junior high or high school volunteer (a “BUDDY”) to help them enjoy the game  - the Buddies are there to engage our players in conversation, help them hit, throw, catch, and run, and ensure their safety.

This is a fun and rewarding way to give back to your community and a great way to earn service hours.  

When do we play?
All games will be played at 2:00 pm on the WULL fields on the following Sundays:  March 24, April 7, 14, 21, 28 and May 5. We ask all Buddies to arrive 30 minutes before the games (1:30). Our games last approximately 1 hour.  Buddies are asked to commit to at least 3 games.

I want to be a BUDDY!   How do I register?
Just complete the registration form. Registration is free.

Buddy Training!!!
New Challenger Buddies must attend the official Buddy training session:

Wednesday February 6, 2013 at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church 6:00

We need at least 150 Buddies per game day!

Thank you from your Challenger Team!
