Young athletes program
The Young Athletes program is a fun, unique event for children with intellectual disabilities. All activities are fun and focus on physical and mental growth. Children aged 2-7 enjoy games and activities help develop motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
Young Athletes is an early introduction to sports and to the world of Special Olympics. The children learn new things, play and have lots of fun! Parents say their children in Young Athletes also develop better social skills. The confidence boost makes it easier for them to play and talk with other children on the playground and elsewhere.
