Hutchinson Public Schools has offered a Special Olympics School Age Delegation since the 2012-13 school year. Special Olympics helps individuals with intellectual disabilities overcome barriers through sports. It empowers athletes to shatter stereotypes and exceed their personal bests on the playing field and in life. Special Olympics offers people with intellectual disabilities much more than sports competition; it provides athletes with education and experiences that build up their confidence and self-esteem.
Athletes between 6th through 12th grade can participate with the Hutchinson Special Olympics team by competing in the following sports:
- Fall – Bowling
- Winter – Basketball
- Spring – Track and Field
Visit our activities page to register for Special Olympic sports.
Our high school athletes can earn letters for their involvement in each Special Olympics sport.
Our team has a Facebook page – take a look at all the fun the athletes are having!
