Special Olympics In Muscatine

Special Olympics provides activities for people with Intellectual Disabilities, so they may make connections with people in their community.  Special Olympics is an International program of year-round sports and athletic competitions for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.  There are approximately 130 individuals involved in the Muscatine County Special Olympics program.  Special Olympics athletes are men, women, boys and girls.  They are like other athletes.  They train and compete.  They learn to win and to lose.  They strive to do their best.  They inspire us.

We’re excited to announce Special Olympics Iowa is presenting the first ever Fall Classic!  This inaugural event is being held September 29-30th in West Des Moines. Our Muscatine Flag Football Teams and Flag Football Skills players will be participating and we wish them all the Best of Luck!
