Athletes are the core of the Special Olympics movement and the meaning behind everything we do. Special Olympics Colorado athletes can train and compete in 20 different sports, participate in a variety of competitions at the local, area, state, and international level. Special Olympics Colorado hosts more than 100 competitions. And, we have unique training events like the Denver Nuggets all-team clinic exclusive to Special Olympics athletes and a Unified soccer team that travels with the Colorado Rapids!
Prior to any Special Olympics Colorado competition, each athlete is required to engage in an extensive training program. As an athlete you will develop fitness and sports skills, and learn the rules and strategies from your coaches. To learn about any upcoming training programs in your area, please contact your Regional Manager.
