2019 Young Athlete- Heather Glenn-5230.j


Special Olympics Young Athletes is an innovative sports play program for children with and without intellectual disabilities ages 2 through 7 and provides opportunities for young children to be active, have fun, and learn foundational sports skills. 

Participate in Young Athletes!

The program supports physical, cognitive and social development — skills important on and off the sports field. It also offers families connections to local Special Olympics programs that their children can engage with throughout their lifetimes. There is no cost for your family to participate in Young Athletes. The program offers one hour classes that meet for 6-8 weeks. For more information and to learn about bringing Young Athletes to your town, please contact Sarah Lange.

Children with and without intellectual disabilities ages 2-7 are encouraged to participate in Young Athletes.
