Athletics Sport

Athletics encourages athletes of all abilities and ages to compete at their optimum level. Through the track-and-field-based athletics training program, participants can develop total fitness to compete in any sport. As with all Special Olympics sports, athletics offers athletes the opportunity to learn through skill development and competitive settings and to be involved in large social settings.

In essence, success in athletics depends on the athlete’s determination and practice habits. Yet merely by participating in an athletics training program, the athlete can learn:
  • self-discipline
  • the ability to make independent decisions
  • lifelong fitness skills that will help him or her lead a more productive and independent life.
