Special Olympics Texas (SOTX) is a year-round movement, holding more than 300 competitions annually on area, regional and state levels. Event divisions are based on age, gender and ability level to give athletes an equal chance to win. Each participant receives a medal or ribbon following their events.
SOTX also offers a variety of programs including those to keep atheletes in great shape with health screenings and assistance in finding the right medical equipment, programs for athletic leadership training and those to foster an inclusive environment with other atheletes in the area. There are even programs for children as young as 2 years of age and Motor Activities Training Programs designed specifically for athletes who are unable to participate in traditional Special Olympics sports.
