To be eligible to participate in SOWH, athletes must have an intellectual disability; a cognitive delay, or a development disability, that is, functional limitations in both general learning and adaptive skills. Participation in Special Olympics starts at age 8 years, and there’s no maximum age limit. Benefits that athletes receive from their participation include improved physical fitness, improved motor skills, greater self-confidence, a more positive self image, develop friendships, and increased support.


SOWH would not exist today without the time, energy, commitment and enthusiasm of people just like you, thousands of individuals who choose to take a little time from busy schedules to come out and experience the joy of sports, friendship and help transform lives. Mahalo nui loa!
