Sports and Competitions

Participate with Special Olympics Utah

Developing skills, building self-esteem and having fun, all while participating in year-round sports training and competition is the life of a Special Olympics Utah athlete. Whatever their skill level, with eight sports to choose from, plus the Motor Activities Training Program (MATP),  Special Olympics Utah has something for every person with an intellectual disability.

State Competitions

The State Basketball Tournament, Summer State Games, and Fall Sports Classic seasons allow athletes (and partners) from around the state the opportunity to compete against others, challenging their abilities and creating lasting friendships.
