Volunteers: Be a Challenger Buddy

Share your excitement for baseball and connect with Challenger players by volunteering to be a buddy!


Challenger baseball needs adult, teen and kid volunteers.


Buddy volunteers are paired up with players to be a friend, help with skills when needed and keep players safe.  No prior experience is necessary and there will be a buddy training prior to the season.  Teen and adult buddies can also volunteer to run practice stations and assist players.


If you have questions or to register as a volunteer, please contact:
