Enjoy the Challenge

Special Olympics athletes all have the opportunity to participate in programs at a level that suits their individual needs.

Perhaps they have decided to stay active for life, enrolling in year-round programs that run in the community. Or maybe they will choose to take it to a higher level, with an eye to earning the opportunity to compete in National or International Games.

In order to create an environment that is beneficial for everyone involved, on both a competitive and personal level, we have taken great care in developing our rules and our process for placing each athlete in an appropriate group for competition. This way, every athlete is able to participate and benefit from being active. For more information, please visit our Divisioning page.
