Background on Who We Are and What We Do

Special Olympics Ontario is a community-based program. Its primary instrument of program delivery is the local sport clubs, which gives athletes the opportunity to train and compete twelve months of the year. 

Special Olympics is an experience that is energizing, healthy, skillful, welcoming and joyful.

Special Olympics believes that consistent training is essential to the development of sports skills, and that competition among those of equal abilities is the most appropriate means of testing these skills, measuring progress and providing incentives for personal growth.

Invitational and Regional meets occur frequently, (160 average local/regional competitions each year) and athletes advance through a regular cycle of Provincial Games to compete in both National and World Games and Championships.

Provincial Games are held every 4 years for each of the sport seasons: Winter, Spring and Summer. National Summer and Winter Competitions are conducted every four years as are World Winter and Summer competitions. This competition cycle ensures that Ontario athletes have an opportunity to compete in either a provincial, national or international event.
