What We Do

Real Sports Experience

Sports are a powerful force.

They can shift the focus from disability to ability, from isolation to involvement. We offer the highest quality Olympic-style sports training and competition for people with intellectual disabilities. This changes attitudes and changes lives.

The transformative power of sports to instill confidence, improve health and inspire a sense of competition is at the core of what Special Olympics Massachusetts does.

At Special Olympics, the power and joy of sport shifts the focus to what our athletes can do, not what they can’t. Attention to disabilities fades away. Instead, we see our athletes’ talents and abilities, and applaud them for all that they can do. With 24 Olympic-style sports, we offer adults and children with intellectual disabilities many ways to be involved in their communities, and many ways to show who they really are.

There are Special Olympics events almost every day of the week and throughout the year. Come see for yourself, there’s something for everyone!
