About Us

Join our sporting community that values people with an intellectual disability, that supports their goals and celebrates their achievements.

Special Olympics fosters an environment where people with an intellectual disability can have fun, get fit, build self-esteem, demonstrate courage, and make friends.

We provide a community where individuals can meet people of similar ability and develop skills at their own pace. This is done through community sporting, recreational, social and health activities
