State Soccer Cup


Special Olympics Massachusetts is excited to once again partner with the Governor’s Academy, a 2008 Special Olympics Massachusetts Hall of Fame inductee, and is a shining example of the partnership between schools and Special Olympics. For 30 years, the entire student body turns out to volunteer and cheer on the teams competing. The students are led by a select group of students, who apprentice as juniors before leading the event their senior year. This event proves the power and impact Special Olympics has on our volunteers when the mission is turned over and allowed to be run by the next generation of leaders.

The 2017 edition of the State Cup highlighted the 30th anniversary of Special Olympics Massachusetts’ partnership with Governor’s Academy. Over the years, thousands of students have led the effort to provide the best possible venues, volunteers, and atmosphere, showcasing Special Olympics soccer at the highest level in Massachusetts. We thank all of the students, faculty and staff who have been so instrumental in continuing this valuable partnership.
