Challenger ADA Shawn Low
Challenger ADA
I have been involved with Little League in the Challenger program for over 14 years, starting when my son started at 5 (Dakota is now 19). I have a deep passion for giving kids with Special Needs the opportunity to play a team sport, just like their siblings and friends do. I started in Rancho Santa Margarita back in 2009. After growing that program, I moved to Ladera Ranch and managed the Challenger Program there, building it until they had multiple teams. In 2015 I moved to Aliso Viejo. Aliso Viejo Little League did not have a Challenger Program, so I started a team here. 8 years later, we have 4 teams. I am committed to creating an environment for these kids that they can play, succeed, make friends, and believe that they can do anything they put their mind to.

For the past 2 years he has been a member of the District 55 Umpire Advisory Committee and is now looking forward to this new chapter as a member of the District 55 Staff focusing on Junior and Intermediate divisions.
