The Washington County Special Olympics is a group of athletes who live in Washington County. These athletes range from age 8 and up. Currently, we offer Track and field, Individual Basketball Skills, Swimming and Bowling to the participants. We have approximately 85 athletes who compete in the area events and state meets.
Washington County Special Olympics is a non-profit organization funded through private and community donations and fund raising projects.
Special Olympics contributes to the physical, social and psychological development of the athletes. Through successful experiences in sports, they gain confidence and build a positive self-image, which carries over into the classroom, home job and community.
