Since 1969, Special Olympics Colorado (SOCO) has been strengthening families, athletes, and the very soul of the community through sports training and athletic competitions.
Special Olympics Colorado provides year-round training and sponsors over 80 competitions at the area and state level in 20 sports for more than 11,000 athletes statewide. With a base of more than 6,500 volunteers, thousands of hours are donated allowing SOCO to support athletes of all ages and abilities, empowering them to build athletic, learning, and social skills.
Participation with other athletes, non-disabled peers (Unified Sports® partners), coaches, sponsors, and volunteers builds confidence and creates opportunities to participate as productive and respected members of society by increasing public awareness of the athletes’ capabilities. There is no cost to participate in Special Olympics.
