Special Olympics Southern California

Crossing the finish line. Scoring a point. Sticking your landing. Celebrating with the team. Special Olympics Southern California (SOSC) is dedicated to moments such as these, because it is through these moments - and all the moments that lead up to them - that our athletes find strength, success, confidence, and joy. Fans make joy happen. For athletes who do not have family or a support system, Fans are the ones that help cheer them on to the finish line. Fans receive and give more high fives than we can count. Our Fan Experience Coordinators make sure that fans have the tools and energy needed to cheer on the athletes. We cannot do it alone. But, together, we can all experience one of the greatest moments in sports. So, step onto the podium with us and take your place on the team.
