The Parks and Recreation Department's Special Needs Program is designed to offer athletic and social events for people with intellectual disabilities. Interested individuals can participate in athletic events as part of Special Olympics. Athletes with special needs are welcome as well as typically developing volunteers who would like to participate as a "Unified" partner. The suggested age is 6 and up.
The program is run by a volunteer Board of Directors and Volunteer Coaches and Partners. Dances and socials are organized throughout the year.
