June 5-12, 2022 - Orlando

The 2022 Special Olympics USA Games will feature 4,000 athletes, 10,000 volunteers, and 125,000 fans, all of whom will unite in the Orlando area and participate in one of the country’s most cherished sporting events.

Athletes will compete in 19 Olympic-type team and individual sports.  The Games will promote the ideals of acceptance and inclusion through sport, and showcase the athleticism and abilities of people with intellectual disabilities, while highlighting Special Olympics’ work in sport, education, health and community-building.

While the Games will take place for 8 days in June 2022, the work we do -- to serve all of our 58,000+ athletes in Florida and achieve our goal of a more inclusive community -- continues every day of the year.   Find your local program, become a volunteer, become an athlete or Unified partner, or participate and support our year-round events!
