Reach Your Personal Best!

 “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt”

Our Special Olympics volunteers provide sporting opportunities for all people with an intellectual disability regardless of their skills. While some Special Olympics athletes strive to win medals, others enjoy the chance to get active, have fun, make friends and be part of a family.

Our sports programs are delivered within a supportive environment where people with an intellectual disability are accepted and can feel proud. Through the support of Special Olympics we hope to inspire individuals to improve their health, develop self-confidence and bring joy to themselves, their families and their community.

You can help us give more people with an intellectual disability a chance to achieve their personal best. Learn more about Special Olympics, be inspired by our athletes or best of all, get involved!

In case you did not receive an email ..📢 Important Information 📢

We’ve made an important announcement to protect our athletes in relation to the coronavirus.

Special Olympics Australia recommends that our members and clubs postpone all existing training, competitions and other events until further notice.

We recognise the unique context associated with providing services for people with intellectual disabilities and have taken this decision after careful consideration and balancing the benefits, risks and mitigation options.

Importantly, planning for the scheduled 2020 Junior National Games in October at Launceston will continue in the expectation that the Games will proceed as planned.
