Challenger Baseball

Since 1993, the Sully Challenger Baseball in Western Fairfax County has provided the opportunity for mentally and physically challenged boys and girls, aged 5 to 18, and up to 22 if they are still in a high school program, to participate in an athletic environment structured to their abilities. Sully Challenger Baseball is a division of Little League Baseball and is co-sponsored by the Chantilly Youth Association (CYA) and the Southwest Youth Association (SYA).

Challenger Baseball fosters teamwork, self-esteem and social skills and lets kids experience how it feels to be cheered and earn awards for their achievements. There are currently approximately 30 families involved in the Sully Challenger Baseball program.

Everyone gets a chance to play, regardless of limitations or ability. The rules are simple. Each player gets a chance to bat, and nobody gets out. The side is retired when the offense has batted through. Little League also offers a Senior Challenger Division, for players ages 15 and up. There is no age limitation for the Senior Challenger Division, although at this time this division is not played by Sully Challenger Baseball unless player registration deems it is necessary. Players who are ages 15-18 may register and play in either the Little League or Senior Challenger divisions. Our season starts in early April and we play Friday evenings between 6pm and 7:30pm at Chantilly Park on Stringfellow Road (across the street from Chantilly High School) and is routinely supported by teams from both Chantilly and SYA that come out for the night as “buddies”.

The Challenger program is expected to be open for registration once again in the Spring of 2022 with CYA (  Any questions, please contact the SYA Challenger Coordinator: TBD - but will be published soo.
