Our Sports

Athletes can train and compete in Special Olympics sports from the age of 8 years old and up. Some sports have a minimum age requirement that is older than 8 years old.

Each sports season lasts approximately 3-4 months with at least 8 weeks of training and three levels of competition: County, Area, and State Games. Follow the steps below to get signed up.

 If you are NOT a registered Special Olympics Florida athlete, you MUST contact us first BEFORE registering for a sport
