Champions League Spring 2023

Southern Chesapeake Athletic Association's PONY Champions League provides the opportunity for children with special needs to pursue their dreams of team sports in America’s favorite pastime of baseball and softball. It is our goal to provide an environment that enhances the participants’ self-esteem, physical mobility, and embodies the spirit of teamwork and community.

Any individual ages 5 to 19 with a physical or intellectual challenge may participate. If an individual can participate in the traditional baseball or softball programs with reasonable accommodations they should do so.

Children ages 3 to 6 will play in our traditional Foal & Shetland tee ball divisions.

We ALL can Play Ball at SCAA!!

If you have additional questions or need more information please contact our Champions League Coordinator Nicole Jones at [email protected]
