Isle of Man

Founded in 1985 Special Olympics Isle of Man is proud to be a part of the Special Olympics family, helping men, women and children with intellectual disabilities through sport. Some people think that Special Olympics involves just a few days of games once or twice a year. In reality, the training never stops and is as important as the competition itself. Special Olympics Isle of Man offers a lifetime of learning through sport, and benefits individuals on the island of all ages and ability level, from those with low motor abilities to highly skilled athletes.
The Power of Sport. For every Special Olympics athlete, there are many more waiting for their chance.

Special Olympics Isle of Man currently offers a range of individual and team sports that provide meaningful training and competition opportunities. It provides year-round coaching and athletic competition in a variety of sports for children and adults with special needs, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendships with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community. These athletes are supported by a highly trained and committed team of coaches and volunteers who give their time to help out at sporting and fundraising events.

Special Olympics Isle of Man runs a programme so that every person with a learning disability on the island has the opportunity, in their local community, to participate in high quality sport and development activities that bring life-changing experiences of increased skills, self-confidence and joy.
