With over 100 competitions each year in 17 Olympic-style sports, our athletes push hard and play harder. They strive to beat their personal bests, defying the odds again and again. From the local fields to the shining stage of the World Games, from swimming to snowboarding, our athletes showcase the talents and triumphs of people with intellectual disabilities.
Team sports bring people together. Special Olympics Unified Sports® teams do that, too and much more.
Special Olympics coaches have access to a variety of information, training plans, and guidance to help the athletes on their team reach their full potential.
"Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt." — Special Olympics Athlete Oath
