Special Olympics Utah is more than sports… IT CHANGES LIVES.
Athletes are at the heart of our movement. Our athletes are children and adults with intellectual disabilities from around the state of Utah. By participating in Special Olympics Utah, they not only have the opportunity to develop physical fitness and become competitive athletes, but through sport they build self-esteem, social skills, leadership skills and learn life lessons that translate into their lives away from the playing field. They are finding success, joy and friendship as part of their local communities. And they’re having lots of fun!
