Parks & Recreation

Special Olympics

SO

The mission of Henry County Special Olympics is to provide a variety of Olympic type sports and athletic competition year-round for all students and adults with intellectual disabilities.  The experience gives each athlete opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in the sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympic athletes, and the community.

The sports that are offered year round: athletics, alpine skiing, aquatics, basketball, bocce, bowling, equestrian, floor hockey, kayaking, power lifting, softball, tennis and volleyball.

Competitions

We train our athletes at least 8 weeks in advance for each state competition.  The Competitions are Indoor Winter Games, Summer Games, Masters Bowling, Fall Games, and Equestrian.   We also participate in tournaments throughout the year around the state. There are also opportunities for us to compete on National and World Game levels. 

Resurgens Charitable FoundationSpecial Olympics is proud to have sponsors that allow us to take our athletes to each competition and opportunity made available to Henry County.   We are proud to have received a donation from Resurgens Charitable Foundation to help support our team of 5 attending the National Games in June 2014, competing in bowling, bocce, and tennis. We would also like to thank Central Ga EMC for their continued support of our program, as well as the Atlanta Motor Speedway Children’s Charities. 

Volunteers & Sponors

If you are interested in becoming a Special Olympics Coach, and volunteering your time to change the lives of many Special Olympic athletes, please give us a call.   There are coaches’ clinics year round that you can become a certified coach, and also a volunteer for our program. 

If you would like to sponsor any of our athletes, sponsor a competition, or event, please contact Terry Nash at (770) 288-7290.
