Special Olympics is a year-round sports program
that provides recreation and friendships to
intellectually disabled youths and adults. These
athletes benefit greatly when they participate in
Special Olympics. Calvert County Special Olympics
currently offers Aquatics, Basketball, Bocce,
Bowling, Cheerleading, Soccer, Softball and Track
& Field activities. The annual Track &
Field meet is held in partnership with Calvert
County Public Schools.
We need the help of the community to provide
continuing sports training and competition for
these worthwhile athletic endeavors. The athletes
require uniforms, equipment, medals, awards and
transportation to various tournaments and
activities. All this requires money.
