Special Olympics Vermont Summer Games is our largest competition. It takes place at the University of Vermont. We offer four sports: aquatics, athletics (track and field), bocce and softball. Two other staple events at the Summer Games include our Healthy Athletes program and the culmination of our Law Enforcement Torch Run.
