    About Us
    Special Olympics is a movement built on inclusion, where every person is accepted and welcomed, regardless of ability or disability. We are helping make the world a better, healthier and more joyful place through the power of sport.
    Whether your interest is competitive or social in nature, we want you on our team. Through sports, athletes find joy, acceptance and success.
    Volunteers are the backbone of the Special Olympics movement. They bring out the champion in every Special Olympics athlete.
    Our coaches work closely with athletes and Unified partners to provide top-notch athletic instruction and serve as leaders, mentors, and role models.
    Special Olympics Virginia is made up of 32 Area programs, organized into nine regions. Connect with your local program to get involved.
