    The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. This gives them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.


    To participate in local Special Olympics events, students must be identified by an agency or professional as having one of the following conditions; intellectual disabilities, cognitive delays as measured by formal assessment, or significant learning or vocational problems due to cognitive delay that require specially designed instruction. In order to participate in Special Olympics events, student athletes must have a medical release completed every three years that is signed by the child's medical professional and parent. Medical release forms are provided to the parent by the district Special Olympics coordinator.
