Challenger Sports LeagueThe success of the Greensboro Challenger League reflects an extraordinary collaboration of parents and community organizations. Parents dedicate their time and energies to coach and support their children. The Greensboro Department of Parks & Recreation arranges access to a baseball field on Saturday mornings during the spring and fall as well as a gymnasium for adaptive basketball during the winter. Particpants also enjoy bowling on Saturday afternoons during the winter. The Greensboro Grasshoppers kick off the spring Challenger season with a baseball practice clinic at NewBridge Bank Park.
