The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
Chester County Special Olympics currently offers training in 16 Olympic sports, serving over 400 local athletes at various training sites throughout the county.
Special Olympics would not exist today – and could not have been created – without the time, energy, commitment and enthusiasm of our volunteers.Volunteers are the backbone of Chester County Special Olympics. They serve as coaches, trainers,fundraisers,donors and event supporters. Special Olympic athletes and volunteers share a rich relationship while striving for their dreams..
