Special Olympics participation encompasses 22 official sports, Unified Sports, Athlete Leadership Programs, Unified Champion Schools, Red Shirt Rookies, Young Athletes, and community initiatives– truly a spectrum of choices!
Athletes are the focus of our organization and the reason we are here. Our traditional sports program serves athletes from ages 8 onward and children from 2 to 5 can participate in our Young Athletes Program. Special Olympics Colorado also offers transitional activities for 6 and 7 year olds.
Families play a critical role in the continued success and growth of Special Olympics Colorado. Families are a constant source of support and encouragement for their athlete. There are many ways for families to get involved, please contact Megan Toohey, Vice President of Development.
