Our 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 a sharing of gifts, and skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
Our Vision is to promote acceptance, inclusion, and well-being for people with intellectual disabilities through sports.
Our mission and vision are supported by the core values shaping every decision. By sticking to these values, we guarantee the continued success of Special Olympics Louisiana.
