Whether your interest is competitive or social in nature, we want you on our team. We provide year round athletic training and competitions all at NO COST to our athletes. Anyone age 8 or older who has an intellectual disability can become a Special Olympics athlete.
We offer year round sports training and competitions in 11 different sports. These provide opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate perseverance, experience joy and form friendships with other athletes and their families.
Volunteers are the backbone of the Special Olympics movement. There are many ways to help: working directly with athletes in their training as either a volunteer or coach, assisting at an athletic competition or fundraiser or serving on the Council.
