District 200 Special Olympics 

Our Special Olympics philosophy revolves around one primary premise; that young people learn life lessons through participation on a team, during both practices and games. Lessons involving team work, work ethic, leadership, fair play, and responding to adversity are reinforced at all times. While the development of sport specific skills and winning is important, they never supersede the life lessons we strive to teach. While other teams may choose to play more skilled athletes in an effort to gain an advantage, we will not. In addition to athletes and coaches, parents and family members also play an important role in the program. Our hope is that all members of the District 200 Special Olympics Program work together to support and teach those invaluable lessons to our athletes; and enjoy the experience along the way.
 
All Athletes must have an updated medical application.  This application needs to be updated every two years and the date goes by the last date of the doctor visit.  See below for the application and instructions.  Applications must be valid through the date of the Special Olympics event and prior to their cut of date for accepting applications. 
 
 

Volunteer Opportunities

Peer Partners are an integral part of the District 200 Special Olympics Program. Peer Partners are high school students who assist coaches and athletes at practices and games. The addition of Peer Partners has allowed our athletes to develop positive peer relationships and work on social skills while at practices.
Anyone interested in becoming a Peer Partner should contact Megan Burress.
