Special Olympics DC provides training for 10 sports annually. For each sport offered, an extensive eight-week training program is developed in conjunction with group service providers and the DC public school system. Athletes are eligible to participate in as many sports as they like, completely free of charge. An Olympic-style tournament follows each training period, complete with the heart and soul of athletic competition and an awards ceremony.
