The powerful social benefits of sport are of particular importance to people with an intellectual disability because one of the first effects of their disability is social isolation. For many Special Olympics athletes, training sessions become the source and the nourishment of their deepest friendships.

To help athletes living with an intellectual disability measure their progress on a regular basis, SOQ set up a network of annual competitions now totalling over 80 events (including the provincial championships) in each of its 17 official sports.

  • Powerlifting

  • Swimming
  • Small Pins
  • Soccer
