Special Olympics

Special Olympics provides activities for people with Intellectual Disabilities, so they may make connections with people in their community.  Special Olympics is an International program of year-round sports and athletic competitions for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.  There are approximately 130 individuals involved in the Muscatine County Special Olympics program.  Special Olympics athletes are men, women, boys and girls.  They are like other athletes.  They train and compete.  They learn to win and to lose.  They strive to do their best.  They inspire us.
 
Special Olympics offers training and competition opportunities for every athlete, regardless of gender, age or ability.  No matter what the ability level, there is a benefit from Special Olympics.  No matter what the interest—there is a sport for you.  Prior to participation in the program, a Special Olympic athlete must complete an application and release of information form.  These forms can be received from Jason Miller, Special Olympics Program Director, at the Y.

OPENING DOORS 

As we wrap up construction on the front part of the YMCA, we want to thank you for your flexibility and patience.  Although we won’t be completely finished with construction until June or July, our hope is the opening of the front entrance in December will help create some excitement and open doors for us to help you reach your fitness goals.

If you’re an athlete, volunteer or looking to be a part of our program, please feel free to stop in and take a tour of our newly renovated YMCA!
