Special Olympics is for people with intellectual disabilities, it is often the only place where they have an opportunity to fully participate in their communities and develop self confidence and a belief in themselves.
For athletes, Special Olympics sports provide a gateway to empowerment, competence, acceptance and joy. The lessons learned in Special Olympics also impact their life skills. Sports training enhances focus and gives participants a structure for learning important lessons about perseverance, endurance and setting goals.
The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults 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 training and competition is open to every person with intellectual disabilities and Sinagua Middle School is proud to offer this opportunity to our students. If you are interested in having your child participate in please contact me, and I look forward to working with you.
