Special Olympics

Special Olympics Tuscarawas County provides a year-round recreational, sports training and competition program for eligible students and adults ages eight and older. Special Olympics contributes to the physical, social, and psychological development of those who participate. The experience helps them gain confidence and build a positive self-image which carries over into the classroom, home, job and community.
