Challenger Jamboree

WELCOME TO THE 2019 CHALLENGER JAMBOREE!

KMBA and the City of Kamloops are proud to host the 2019 Challenger Jamboree June 15th at beautiful McArthur Island Park.

The Challenger Division provides an opportunity for children and young adults with cognitive or physical disabilities to enjoy the thrill of playing baseball, being part of a team, developing physical and social skill plus all the benefits of participation in baseball at a level structured to their abilities. Games are played in a fun, safe environment where no score is kept. Our philosophy is very simple: 'Play, just for fun!!'

The Challenger Jamboree brings teams from across the Province together for one day to share in the excitement of sport and play the game of baseball. This is the first year the event has been held outside of the Lower Mainland and we are expecting close to 400 athletes along with their coaches and buddies to attend.

The park has 12 diamonds for ages 5 to 18. The majority of diamonds are fully enclosed with electronic scoreboards on at least one or both diamonds for 13U, 15U and 18U.
