Special Olympics Western Australia

At Special Olympics our goal is to ensure people with intellectual disability get to have special moments.
Moments that give them joy and confidence. Magical moments that will stay with them for a lifetime.

We aim to give all people with intellectual disability the opportunity to play sport their way, on their terms.
To set their own goals and dreams and to reach them, to exceed them and to share these moments with the ones they love.

If you’d like to get involved or join our program, please complete our online form and we’ll be in touch with you soon.
