SFLL Spring 2024 Challenger Baseball


Use this form to register your child to play in the 2023 SFLL Spring Challenger baseball season. Players must be 5-years-old or older as of January 1, 2023 to play Challenger baseball in the 2023 Spring season. The Spring season will run from Saturday, March 4, 2023 to sometime in early June. The Challenger baseball registration fee is $100.00. Financial support is available.


SFLL's Challenger Division is for players with physical, developmental or cognitive disabilities. The program provides children or youth over five years old (as of January 1, 2023) and young adults with disabilities the opportunity to join a baseball team, get some exercise, and learn some baseball skills with other kids in an informal, supportive environment. SFLL will be fielding teams for both kids+younger teens, and older teens+young adults in Spring 2024. We invite your child or children you know to join our program!

Challenger Little League baseball season runs from mid-March to mid-June, and includes about ten games on Sunday afternoons. Home games are played at either Riordan High School or at SFLL's fields on Treasure Island. Home games are interspersed with away games with Challenger teams in Marin, Oakland or on the Peninsula.

Kids learn the basics of baseball, and how to play as part of a team. However, games are non-competitive, with full participation by all. Every player takes a turn at bat every inning, and always gets on base and gets to advance around the bases. There are no outs, no one keeps score, and everyone has a great time for one to two hours, once a week on Sunday afternoons.

Parents and coaches and occasionally players from Little League’s other programs provide support and as much (or little) assistance as each player wants or needs to participate to the best of their ability and enjoy the game. San Francisco Little League provides each player a uniform similar to those of other Little League teams. Most importantly—everyone has a great time!

We also offer a number of supplemental events, such as group attendance at Giants games, and an end-of-season June "Jamboree" with the other Bay Area teams we play. Most years, the San Francisco Giants have graciously also invited our kids to attend a "clinic" hosted by members of the Giants' team, always a highlight.

Little League’s Challenger Division was founded in 1989 and includes over 22,000 players nationally. 


The fee for Challenger Division registration is $100 (less than for other Little League divisions). 


SFLL offers scholarship assistance to any eligible player through our Fee Waivers program. Low income residents, children who are unhoused/Homeless, or families who participate in any of the San Francisco Human Services Agency (H.S.A.) administered programs such as MediCal, CalWORKS, Food Stamp, Public Housing Authority, or Foster Care, qualify for a 100% Fee Waiver. Even families who are not eligible for one of these programs but still need financial support can request a Fee Waiver.  

Families can request Fee Waivers by self-attesting to your eligibility as outlined above later in this form. Scholarships are offered to all our programs and divisions, including Tee Ball, Baseball, Softball and Challenger ball. No applicant will be turned away for lack of funds.

Fee Waivers are made possible through registration fees and thanks to the generous support of our donors and sponsors.


The final date for Challenger registration is March 1, 2024, however, to help us plan for the Spring, we ask parents and caregivers to please register as early as possible, preferably before January 1, 2024. Please note that early registration will also ensure that your child is able to participate in case available spaces on teams fill up this year!


If you know additional families who may be interested in Challenger baseball in the Spring, please send us their names or have them contact us. You can also refer them to the SFLL website:
