The mission of Special Olympics is to provide sports training and athletic competition opportunities to persons eight years of age and older with an intellectual disability or a closely related developmental disability.
Special Olympics Texas provides an opportunity
- for families to share in the accomplishments of their children.
- to share the Special Olympics joy with other families.
- to allow the extended family the opportunity to be part of a year-round sports training and competition program.
Families are Special Olympics Texas’ most powerful resource. Families help coach, transport, fundraise, officiate, chaperone and train other volunteers. Families are Special Olympics’ most highly-motivated and enthusiastic goodwill ambassadors.
There are currently 140 countries worldwide participating in Special Olympics with nearly 1 million athletes worldwide. The Alvin ISD Panthers participate in a variety of sports including bowling, basketball, and track and field.
All athletes must have a completed medical release on file before they can participate in practices or competitions. This medical release form can be obtained from the Special Olympics Head of Delegation (HOD) or downloaded below.
