Philipsburg, Sint Maarten — The St. Maarten Little League Association is pleased to announce that Social & Health Insurance (SZV) has partnered with us to host the 3rd Annual Challenger Jamboree on Saturday, June 15th, 2024.The Challenger Jamboree is a fun softball game for those with different (physical or intellectual) disabilities. 

We are partnering with institutions such as Sister Basilia Center, Prins Willem Alexander School, and 721 Kids Foundation, as they regularly care for persons who are qualified to participate in the games. There is room for more athletes, so we are encouraging families from the wider community to register their loved ones if they form part of this group of special people. The registration deadline is June 7th, as final preparations are being made for printing the lime green T-shirts for each participating athlete. 

Volunteer buddies will be on hand to assist the special athletes as they bat, run, catch, 

and have a great time. Thanks in advance to organizations such as the Fire Department and the St. Maarten Police Force for their continuous support of this annual event. 

The Challenger Jamboree softball game is a unique and important event fostering more inclusivity within our community. SZV is honored to join the St. Maarten Little League Association in hosting this year’s game. It is our wish that as many persons in our community come out on June 15 to cheer on the athletes during this special event. – Charonne Holder, SZV Manager Corporate Communications
