Special Olympics Florida

More than 500 athletes and Unified partners competed in 19 sports at the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games!

Building Unified and Inclusive Communities

Celebrating a community where everyone has the lifelong opportunity to develop physically, socially, and emotionally through sports, wellness and leadership training.


Athletes are the heart of our movement. We offer year-round sports training and competition for all abilities and at no cost to the athlete or their families!

Making a difference in Florida

It takes all of us to create a world of inclusion — athletes, volunteers, families, sponsors, coaches, the general public — who are willing to open our minds and hearts and provide new opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities.









Number of lives changed?  Every one of them!


Drive Awareness to our Mission

Special Olympics Florida's specialty license plate is a great way to show your support and be part of the inclusion revolution.

Need assistance in receiving a sports physical?

For current or prospective Special Olympics Florida athletes, who are in need of assistance in obtaining a sports physical — a requirement for participation in our program — we can help!

Join the Inclusion Revolution

It's a celebration that culminates with a series of race events across Florida via running, swimming, golfing, or paddling. The time is now to help us build a world of inclusion and acceptance.
