2018 Winter Games
Special Olympics offers over 32 Olympic-style individual and team sports that provide meaningful training and competition opportunities for persons with intellectual disabilities. Programs are provided for all ages and ability levels.
Through sports training and competition, our athletes are realizing their abilities, not disabilities. Their world is opened with acceptance and understanding. They become confident and empowered by their accomplishments.
In Alaska we offer 14 Olympic-style sports in four sport seasons. Each season includes opportunities for competition on a local and state level. In addition, athletes have the opportunity to qualify and advance to National and World Games. Special Olympics Alaska Coaches are required to take the Coaches Certification Course. Resources for coaches can be found here.
