Special Olympics Florida


Building Unified Communities

By playing and leading together, we are creating an inclusive and welcoming world for all! Be part of a powerful new generation that celebrates ALL abilities -- in sports, in schools, in health!


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!
