Special Olympics Nevada provides inclusive programs and opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities in the areas of sports, education, health, and leadership development. Our program participants (i.e., athletes) learn skills that build their confidence and self-esteem, making them valuable members of their community. Our “Unified” approach in our programs engages both people with and without disabilities in activities together, allowing us to elevate the abilities of those who are differently abled. Special Olympics Nevada’s work is helping to establish our region as a Leader in inclusive services.
Start a journey of discovery and fun!
In order to participate in Special Olympics Nevada, all athletes are required to complete an Athlete Application that includes a physical from a licensed physician. Athletes must be 8 years of age or older to start competing, but athletes between 6-7 years of age can start training.
HAS YOUR APPLICATION EXPIRED WITHIN A YEAR? OR WILL EXPIRE SOON?
If you have not had any medical changes since your last physical and your application has expired within 12 months (or will expire in 12 months), you will only need to complete and submit sections A-F of our athlete application.
*Athletes will only be allowed to renew without a physical ONE TIME every 6 years.
