What is the age range to participate?
Athletes ages 6 and 7 can participate in Special Olympics training only. Athletes ages 8 and over can participate in Special Olympics training and competition. There is no upper age limit in Special Olympics
Do you have to be good at sports to participate?
No, because we emphasize sports training, our competitive divisions are based on skill ability. Also, because there is a wide range of events that athletes can participate in for each sport, all athletes, regardless of their skill ability in a given sport can train and compete in Special Olympics.
Is there a fee to participate?
There is no cost for any athlete to join Greenwich Special Olympics or to compete in any of the competitions. Greenwich Special Olympics does incur costs associated with training and competitions, as well as uniforms, equipment and rental fees. We are able to offer this to our athletes, through donations and fundraising.
