Young Athletes is an innovative sports play program that introduces children ages 2-7 years old with and without intellectual disabilities to the world of sports. We believe there is no better way to bring these young athletes into the Special Olympics family than through a program like Young Athletes—fostering inclusion in a fun and engaging setting for all.
