Become a Challenger Little League Volunteer
Challenger Division salutes the many volunteers who have given their time and
talent over the years to support Little League all over the world, and here in our organization.
We invite you to join us this year as a Manager, Coach, Team Parent, or Buddy
Buddies are one of the traditions that make New Mexico Challenger Little League a rich experience for families. Of course, family members are always welcome to help their child on the field—but some families also look forward to seeing their disabled child interacting not only with the team coaches but with helpers, their “buddies” on the field. Often the buddies are the same age as the players. Some of these buddies are players from the local Little League who volunteer to help with our special players for a game at their ballpark. Another buddy might be a Boy or Girl Scout who wants to help, perhaps as part of a merit badge. Sometimes the buddy is a coach’s own child. And one of our teams has recruited volunteer helpers from Immanuel Lutheran School’s 8th grade class, which added Challenger as one of its available service projects in 2011.
The Challenger kids almost always respond well to their buddies, who might help them swing the bat, push their wheelchair or lead them around the bases. But they can do much more than just help; they can be their friend. A friend who isn’t there just for their disability but who also wants to talk with them and encourage them. And it isn’t just the Challenger player who benefits from this help. Read what one 13-year-old volunteer from Immanuel wrote about her service as a Challenger Buddy in 2011:
“I worked with a boy who has autism. We became good friends through baseball. Before I helped with Challenger Little League, I didn’t know how to act around kids that had disabilities. Challenger Little League helped me to learn that they are kids just like us. They deserve to be treated with respect. I want to continue helping in Challenger Little League because of the great experience that I had, the friendly environment, the players on the team, and the fun that I had while serving. Challenger Little League helped me to learn more about kids with disabilities, make new friends, and have fun.”
