The UT Challenger Sports Program is a co-ed recreation program that enables children ages 5 and up with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities to enjoy the benefits of team sport participation.  The program is broken down into fun filled skill-building activities designed to fit the individual player’s ability and an adapted game.  The player will be paired up with a volunteer “Buddy” to shadow the player and offer encouragement and support when needed.

 Games will be held on Sundays: April 5, 19 / May 3, 10, 17, 31 from 1pm-2pm. We will skip April 12st for Easter, April 26th for Special Olympics Track Meet, May 24th for Memorial Day Weekend. Games will be played at the Upper Township Middle School baseball fields at 525 Perry Rd., Petersburg, NJ. Times and location may change if needed.
