Young Athletes™

This is a unique sport and play program for children ages 2 to 7 with intellectual disabilities. The focus is on fun activities that are important to mental and physical growth. Young Athletes™ is an early introduction to sports and to the world of Special Olympics. The children learn new things, play and have lots of fun!

Contact Johna Thum if you are interested in starting a Young Athletes™ program in your community.
