Who IS Team Utah?

Special Olympics Utah proudly introduces the athletes, coaches, volunteers and staff that will represent Utah at the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games July 1 – 6 in Seattle, WA. Athletes will compete in Bocce, Swimming, Golf, Athletics, and Unified Soccer.

The USA Games will take place July 1-6, 2018 in Seattle, Washington.  These athletes were selected based on participation in the 2017 Summer Games & Fall Sports Classic, their placement in the games, and a random drawing of names supervised by a committee.  We express our appreciation to the committee for their time.
