Volunteer with Challenger Baseball
Volunteers play a critical role in creating a safe environment for Challenger players. Challenger leagues utilize “buddies” who assist the athletes in the areas of batting, base running and defense, as needed. This relationship is a very rewarding experience for everyone involved: Challenger players enjoy the thrill of participation, and their buddies experience first-hand the challenges these individuals face in their daily lives.
Buddies play many important roles, including:
- Protecting the Challenger player at all times
- When hard hitters are up to bat, buddies stepping in front of the Challenger player for protection.
- Allowing Challenger players as much freedom as possible to play his/her own game.
- Assisting Challenger players according to their needs.
- Role modeling good spirit with enthusiasm, love, good altitude and concern in motivating the players and their families.
- Becoming a friend by getting to know the players and their families.
- Arriving at the field 30 min prior to game time, properly dressed in a Buddies shirt.
- Demonstrating high morals, integrity and sportsmanship on and off the field.
- Having fun!
