Challenger Athletics

Challenger Miracle Field rests on the idea of giving kids and adults with mental and physical challenges to participate and play in sports like anyone else. We are fortunate enough to be able to offer 4 sports leagues to anyone in the Rochester, NY and surrounding areas. We are always open to new ideas and offerings! For more information on the Miracle Field leagues please see the information below.

Challenger Baseball

Little League Baseball established the Challenger Division in 1989 as a separate division to enable boys and girls with physical and mental challenges, (ages 4 through 18, or up to age 22 if still enrolled in high school), to enjoy the game of baseball along with the estimated 5 million other children who participate in this sport worldwide. Many of the towns in the Rochester area have their own Challenger Baseball Team. Miracle Field Founder, Coach Ron, runs the Webster Challenger Baseball Team. For more information click here:

Challenger Bowling

Miracle Field runs a Challenger Bowling each year for 10 weeks beginning in January.  The league is held at AMF Bowling Alley in Webster, NY but is available for kids in any town in the Rochester, NY area. Participants can use bumpers and ramps and are provided with shoes and a ball each week. We are sensitive to sensory issues and do not play loud music or have any flashing lights. This is a very popular winter time activity for our challenger players! For more information on getting involved please email Katie Kovar at kkovar@nullrochestermiraclefield.org
