Our Sports

Special Olympics Minnesota believes that people with intellectual disabilities can, with proper instruction and encouragement, learn, enjoy and benefit from participation in individual and team sports. Necessary adaptation ensures we meet the needs of those with intellectual and physical disabilities.

Through sports, our athletes celebrate their abilities, not their disabilities. Their world opens with acceptance and understanding, while becoming confident and empowered by their accomplishments. They make new friends, joining a global community that’s growing every day.  The South Region Stars offers both team and individual sports, providing year-round opportunities.

The seasons listed represent when the State Games are held.  Before then, athletes are practicing and competing at area meets.
