Families are a vital part of the Special Olympics Montana community.Families are the No. 1 fans of our Special Olympics athletes. They give the type of love, support and encouragement that no one else can. Special Olympics is a support network that brings families together in a caring, positive way — and that makes the cheers for our athletes even louder.

Special Olympics Montana Families

Strong Bond

Volunteer in your loved one’s athletic training. At Special Olympics competitions, family members are among friends — and feel at home. They watch with pride as their child, sibling, cousin, grandchild, aunt or uncle find success and joy.

Match Up

Share ideas, issues and common interests with other families. Among people who really understand, even family members can be unaware of all that their child or relative with an intellectual disability can do.

Be An Advocate

Families are also an essential link to the community and wider support for our movement. By joining the Family Support Network, becoming a volunteer, and leading the expansion of Young Athletes, Special Olympics family members can really make a difference.

Get Involved


Special Olympics Montana would not exist today without the expertise, time, and enthusiasm of its volunteers. They are on the sports field guiding the athletes through drills. They are behind the scenes ensuring events run properly. And they are giving and receiving more high fives and hugs than they can count.

Register an Athlete

Special Olympics athletes are children and adults with intellectual disabilities who are like other athletes – they love to train, compete and do their best, whether they win or lose. By joining Special Olympics an athlete can meet new friends and experience great rewards in achieving the best that they can.
