Little League Jamboree to be held this weekend

PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — Since 1989, the Little League Challenger Division has provided individuals with physical and intellectual challenges with an opportunity to participate in the Little League Baseball and Softball program. That opportunity will arrive once again in Portsmouth this weekend.
Thanks to the help and support of dedicated volunteers throughout North America, participants from a variety of Challenger Division programs will have the opportunity to come together and experience a day of fun, socialization, and lifelong memories at one of the 11 Little League Challenger Division Jamborees to be held in 2018.

The Rhode Island District 2 Challenger Jamboree will be held on Sunday, June 10, at Glen Park. According to the Facebook event page, the Jamboree will take place from 12:30 to 5 p.m.

“Challenger Division Jamborees provide a unique opportunity for members of our Challenger Programs to join together and experience the fun and joy of a tournament atmosphere,” said Sam Ranck, Little League Director of the Challenger Division and League Development Manager. “We are very thankful to all the dedicated volunteers who make these events so special and create everlasting memories for all of the participants involved with these Jamborees.”

From opening ceremony festivities to a variety of fun and games available to participants, each of the Little League Challenger Division Jamboree provides a unique experience for players, coaches, buddies, and volunteers.

Organizers are also seeking volunteers still for the local event.
