We know our state does amazing things for athletes. We put equipment in their hands, we ensure they have skilled, trained coaches, and we fund health screenings to ensure athletes are healthy, on and off the field.
But really, the athletes are the heroes, aren’t they?
It’s hard not to have a smile on your face when you think about their grit and determination —and it’s exactly because athletes do so much for us that we should do whatever we can for them!

The mission of Special Olympics Wyoming is to provide year round participation in sports training and athletic competition in a variety of well-coached Olympic-Type sports for individuals with intellectual disabilities by providing athletes with continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness skills, express courage, experience joy and participate in the sharing of talents, skills and friendship with their families, friends, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
Special Olympics is founded on the belief that people with intellectual disabilities can, with proper instruction and encouragement, learn, enjoy and benefit from participation in individual and team sports, adapted as necessary to meet the needs of those with intellectual and physical limitations.
Special Olympics believes that consistent training is indispensable to the development of an individual’s sports skills. In addition, competition among those of equal abilities is the most appropriate means of testing these skills, measuring progress, and providing incentives for personal growth.
