Elkhorn Young Athletes

Elkhorn Young Athletes focuses on children ages two through seven who would like extra support in learning sport skills. ALL children (both with and without special needs) are welcome to sign up as Young Athlete Participants.

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 sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.
