Eligibility
To be eligible to participate in Special Olympics, children, youth and adults must have an intellectual disability; a cognitive delay, or a development disability, that is, functional limitations in both general learning and adaptive skills. A person is eligible to participate in Special Olympics if they have been identified by an agency or professional as having intellectual disabilities as determined by their localities.

The minimum age requirement for participation in Special Olympics competition is eight years of age.
We also launched Active Start and FUNdamentals nationwide, two innovative sports play program for children with intellectual disabilities between the ages of two to 12, which introduces them to the world of sports prior to Special Olympics eligibility at age eight. These programs engage young athletes through a variety of developmentally appropriate play activities that are designed to foster physical, cognitive and social development.
