Sports are a powerful force. They work towards shifting the focus from disability to ability, and from isolation to involvement.

Special Olympics is the world’s largest program of sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, currently serving 5 million athletes in over 170 countries. In Montana, we are currently serving 2,000 athletes with support from over 4,000 volunteers. Special Olympics Montana has programs in 65 communities across the state offering 12 sports as well as the Motor Activities Training Program (MATP).

Special Olympics Montana also offers amazing opportunities for athletes to be involved with our mission off the court. Check out the athlete leadership tab below for more information!
