About Us
Eddie's Club, Inc. is a non-profit organization geared towards giving kids, teens, and young adults that have any form of disability, an opportunity to participate in a supervised, volunteered-based, activities and recreational program. The club offers a variety of activities from October through March. Check the Schedule Link for a list of current activities or the activities link for a list of typical Eddie's Club activities.
Springfield Challenger Baseball is a division of West Springfield Little League for children with special needs ages 4-18, or up to age 22 if still enrolled in high school. It is managed by Eddie's Club in cooperation with West Springfield Little League, Central Springfield Little League, and South County Little League. Eddie's Club provides a companion baseball program for young adults 19 and up. See our activities page for additional information.
We provide a volunteer-based inclusive recreation program with one-on-one peer buddy support, in a positive, fun atmosphere with role models for age appropriate behavior. Our program builds self-esteem, confidence, acceptance, as well as an opportunity to establish on-going relationships with others. We also provide opportunities to socialize, learn proper cooperative behaviors, sort out problems and work together as part of a team.
Eddie's Club and Springfield Challenger give our kids a sense of belonging outside of the immediate family. Since inception we have grown to a registration of over 200 youngsters with special needs and over 300 peer-buddy volunteers from the Northern Virginia - Washington Metropolitan area. We serve not only as an activity program for the kids but also a respite and informational program for the families.
