Athletes will be competing in a variety of different sports at venues throughout Los Angeles. Games will feature competitions in aquatics, gymnastics, track and field, basketball, football (soccer) and many other summer sports.

Other ways to support the games include fundraising, corporate sponsorship, donating to a Host Town, being a "Fan in the Stands", or a team captain.  Click here for more information about how to get involved. Join us this summer in supporting and celebrating our Special Olympics athletes!!
