Competitive sports breed common ground. Athletes, coaches and the people who support them come together for the love of a sport or the thrill of a game. Not everyone wins.

Through Special Olympics New York, though, everyone is included. Athletes with intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to challenge themselves in fair and even competition. Win or lose, they develop their own character, make friends and find unknown wells of determination within themselves.

If you're a fan of unity, acceptance, empowerment, dignity, pride and fun, you're a fan of Special Olympics New York.
You're one of us.

To provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-style sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.


All funds raised at our Summer Social will support the 45,000+ New York athletes who compete annually!

Individuals from diverse backgrounds come together to work towards one common goal: to promote Special Olympics New York's mission of empowering children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities through year-round Olympic-style athletic training and competition.

Our purpose is to allow Special Olympics New York athletes to showcase their talents and abilities, while improving self-esteem, developing social interactions and enhancing leadership skills on and off the playing field. The Leadership Council empowers Special Olympics New York athletes and their greater communities through unity and inclusion. Embodying the competitive spirit of NYC, the Leadership Council helps bring those with intellectual disabilities onto the same playing field as everyone else.
