What are the benefits for athletes?
Posted by Katie MacDonald on 11 August 2009 08:52 AM
Training and competition in sport while having fun, developing skills and building self-esteem, is the life of a Special Olympics Ontario athlete. With 18 core sports, Special Olympics Ontario has something for every person with an intellectual disability. Please note, the selection of sports in a community is dependent on volunteer and resource availability.

With the opportunities to excel and have fun come the benefits of improved health and self-image. For many athletes, participating in Special Olympics Ontario is a path to healthy living, empowerment, acceptance and friendship. SOO is dedicated to increasing physical fitness, confidence and other sport and life skills of our athletes; all in a positive and supportive environment.
