Special Olympics Florida

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

April is National Volunteer Month

Volunteers power everything behind our mission. They share their talents and dedicate themselves to helping our athletes lead richer, fuller lives. If you are not yet part of our volunteer family, there is a spot that is just right for you.


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!


Guardians of the Flame

More than 300 law enforcement agencies are carrying the torch on a 1,500-mile trip through 67 counties starting March 22. The intrastate torch relay will culminate at the Opening Ceremony of our Special Olympics Florida State Games in May when they bring the Flame of Hope™ into the stadium.

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, or golfing. The time is now to help us build a world of inclusion and acceptance.
