Welcome to Special Olympics Orange County (SOOC)

Our Mission

Special Olympics provides year around sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and a sharing of their gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

Our Goal

We want for all persons with intellectual disabilities to have the chance to become useful and productive citizens who are accepted and respected in their communities. Our program currently serves ~300 athletes in 18 sports.
