Other programs we offer

Special Olympics Unified Sports® is an inclusive program that combines individuals with intellectual disabilities (athletes) and individuals without intellectual disabilities (Unified Partners) on sports teams for training and competition. Athletes and partners compete alongside one another, each in a meaningful and integral role on the Unified Sports team.

Sports bring people together. Special Olympics Unified Sports® teams do that too and much more. Half a million people worldwide take part in Unified Sports®, breaking down stereotypes about people with intellectual disabilities in a really fun way.

The Healthy Athletes program is an initiative developed by Special Olympics Incorporated with a mission of improving the overall health of our athletes through various health screenings. 

This is a wonderful program that offers our athletes the opportunity to improve their health in an environment that is focused on the needs of individuals with intellectual disabilities. 

"People with intellectual disabilities have a 40 percent greater risk for health issues, and health care professionals are not trained in or experienced with caring for people with intellectual disabilities." 
- Special Olympics, Incorporated

In early 2007, Special Olympics created this pilot program to reach out to children with intellectual disabilities ages 3 to 7.

Through Young Athletes, volunteers introduce young children to the world of sport, with the goal of preparing them for Special Olympics Missouri sports training and competition at age 8.

The program focuses on the basics that are crucial to cognitive development: physical activities that develop motor skills and hand-eye coordination and the application of these physical skills through sports skills programs.
