Special Needs Program

Private Lessons with Accommodations

At Challenge U. we have dedicated ourselves to giving softball and baseball lessons to athletes of all ages since 2011. In 2017, Coach Lisa, the Challenge U. owner/founder, decided to partner with Jaimee Fedele, Board Certified Behavior Analyst, who specializes in instruction children with developmental disabilities.  After much research, Lisa and Jaimee found there was an extremely limited amount of extra-curricular activities available for the special needs community.  In true Coach Lisa fashion, something had to be done. So, she did something about it… Together, they decided to launch a program to offer children with developmental disabilities an opportunity to access the same sports training available to all.

We Challenge U.

When you’re raising a child with special needs, learning to play a new sport represents yet another challenge, but one that can be overcome. That’s why at Challenge U. we’re proud to offer softball or baseball lessons for all children. We hope that with our private instruction, our athletes can move past their challenges to play softball or baseball while improving their confidence, bettering their fitness, and expanding their knowledge of sports safety, and HAVING FUN.

Despite the many challenges that a child may face, we challenge our athletes to be engaged with their surroundings through sports.  Some of the softball/baseball challenges that come with our athletes with special needs are motor skills, hand-eye coordination, holding the bat steady, focusing to reach contact with the ball, following the correct steps to hit/field/throw the ball, social skills, listening skills, and engaging with others during game play.  Our softball and baseball lessons unlock the benefits and enjoyment of sports, giving our athletes a new lease on life.

Let’s Do This!

In each 30 minute private softball or baseball lesson, your child will work directly with Coach Lisa, the owner/founder of Challenge U.  All lessons will be individualized to fit your child’s needs, in a safe and accepting environment.  Contact us below to book your private softball or baseball lesson (includes hitting/fielding/throwing).  The manager, Jessica Masters, will call you within 24 hours to schedule and gather more information on your superstar!  Now, let’s conquer this challenge…together.

Special Needs Book A Lesson

  • Each lesson will consist of hitting and fielding for an action packed training session. Typically, all athletes will do more hitting than fielding/throwing/catching, yet all athletes vary.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
