Special Olympics

The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for persons eight years of age and older with intellectual disabilities. We offer such opportunities as soccer, basketball, athletics, figure skating, speed skating, bowling, and snowshoeing. Special Olympics gives the athletes continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendships with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.
Enrollment Information

In order to participate, your son/daughter will need to have an Application for Participation form completed by you and your doctor. This form is good for three years upon completion. The athlete does not need to participate in all the offered events but will have the opportunity to do so.
