Become an Athlete

Our local sport programs welcome athletes as young as 8, with no upper age limit.  Athletes are welcome to participate in as many sports as desired. These programs provide athletes with far more than just the physical benefits of sport - Special Olympics changes lives.

With the opportunities to excel and have fun come the benefits of improved health and self-image.
