Kingston Thunder is proud to announce that in partnership with the Jays Care Foundation we will be launching the Challenger Baseball program this season.
Challenger Baseball is to help kids living with disabilities across Canada bounce back from the pandemic.
Challenger Baseball is Jays Care adaptive baseball program, run in partnership with Baseball Canada and Little League Canada, for children and youth living with disabilities.
The program is specifically designed to empower children, youth and adults living with physical and/or cognitive disabilities. The program teaches athletes living with disabilities the core life skills inherent to baseball, including: teamwork, communication, determination, resiliency, inclusion, support and courage. Challenger Baseball ensures every athlete has the opportunity to play in a fun and safe environment where they learn to become more independent, build confidence, improve their communication skills, and set and achieve their own personal goals.
We need at least 10 athletes that want to be a part of our team.
We are also looking for coaches and volunteers.
Our Challenger Program will be led by Coach Randy Casford.
Players will be involved in at least 2 hours of baseball each week for 6-8 weeks.
Players & Coaches will receive Toronto Blue Jays hats and shirts.

Registration for the Challenger Program is Free!
