Our connection clubs provide a monthly outing for our Challenger kids! These are nights out for the boys club and the girls club. The focus of these events will be to experience unique opportunities out in the community. The participants get to hang out and enjoy each others’ company. This crew brings the fun wherever they go, and this fall the activities are even more amped up, providing varied age-appropriate, memorable events for our connection clubs to explore. Whether it’s learning to bake, attending local theater productions around town, simply sharing a delicious meal together or the girls enjoying a spa day, each connection club event is a guaranteed wild and fun occasion.

This is registration for the Spring 2017 Season. Ages 6 and up. We usually have one practice a week and usually games on Saturday. We will Start Practices late in March and games will be Starting April 15 and go for 6 weeks - No need to worry if you cannot make all games or practices. But the practices are the times the kids build friendships and bonds with their buddy and other team mates. Our T-ball league games will be played in Leesburg at the recreational fields on Park Street behind the Leesburg Library. The majority of games will be scheduled for Saturday mornings, but there will be a few games on Tuesday nights as well. Each team will practice once a week at the practice fields next to The Pointe Methodist Church located at 238 Cedric St. in Leesburg. The game rules were set up in order to promote fairness and good sportsmanship. We do not keep score, there are no outs, and each player bats off of a tee every inning. Batting helmets may be worn, but are not required. Teams will be provided with bats and balls, but the league does not provide gloves. Any player that needs assistance will be provided with a “Buddy” to help them throughout the games and practice. Our goal is to try and play at least three innings in each game. After the game is over, coaches will line up their teams in the infield and get the players ready to shake hands.
