KAU Challenger Team needs players!
KAU Little League will sponsor a Challenger League Team again for the 2013
season. The Challenger League is open to boys and girls with physical and
mental challenges, ages 4-18, or up to age 22 if still enrolled in high
school.

The KAU team plays an 8- or 9-game schedule against other Challenger teams
from the area. All home games are played Sundays at 1 p.m. at the Stoney
Marston Complex off Route 82 in Kennett Square. Teams can include as many
as 15 to 20 players. Challenger games can be played as t-ball games, coach
pitch, player pitch, or a combination of the three depending on the
ability of the players. The Challenger Division encourages the use of
"buddies" for the Challenger players. The buddies assist the Challenger
players on the field, but whenever possible, encourage the players to bat
and make plays themselves. However, the buddy is always nearby to help
when needed.

For more information on the KAU team, please e-mail rkpyle@zoominternet.net
