Special Olympics Vermont Summer Games is our largest annual competition, involving over 400 athletes and partners.  Competition takes place at the University of Vermont athletic facilities (aquatics, athletics, bocce) and the Williston Recreation Fields (softball).  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.  If you are interested in volunteering, visit the Get Involved section of our website to sign up.
