Special Olympics Mission
The mission of Special Olympics
is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety
of Olympic-type sports for persons eight years of age and older with
intellectual disabilities, giving 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.
Special Olympics Philosophy
Special Olympics is founded on the belief that people with intellectual disabilities can, with proper instruction and encouragement, learn, enjoy, and benefit from participation in individual and team sports. These must be adapted only as necessary to meet the needs of those with mental and physical limitations.
Special Olympics believe that consistent training is indispensable to the development of an individual’s sports skills. In addition, competition among those of equal abilities is the most appropriate means of testing these skills, measuring progress, and providing incentives for personal growth.
