The Special Olympics mission is to provide year-round 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 participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

Special Olympics Chicago is one of 17 areas of Special Olympics Illinois offering training and competition in 22 sports. Athletes learn fundamentals, rules, and strategies from their coaches during a training period prior to competition. Competitions are held at the area, regional and state levels.
