Inaugural Season of Cap City’s Challenger Division

Cap City is excited to announce that we’re establishing a Challenger Division. The Challenger Division is Little League’s adaptive program that is open to kids with physical and intellectual challenges. Players that can participate in the traditional Little League Baseball or Softball program with reasonable accommodations should continue to do so.

The Challenger Division will play one day a week (likely a weekend morning) for about 3-4 weeks across the Spring, with a fuller schedule for the Fall 2024 season.

We’re looking for:

  • players from 4-14 to join our inaugural season and
  • volunteer coaches to help our manager and program lead, veteran Cap City coach Tom Widor

If you’re interested in signing-up a player or participating as a coach, please fill out this form and Tom will be in touch on next steps. If you know of a family that may want to participate, please share this information with them. There is no fee to participate in Cap City’s Challenger Division.

If you have questions, contact Tom at
