About Us

Who We Are

The South Region Stars is a team of Special Olympics Minnesota, an organization that offers children and adults with intellectual disabilities year-round sports training and competition.  The Stars competes with  practice in northern Dakota County but welcome all who find our programs the right mix, fit, and convenience.

What We Do

Through practice and competitions, our athletes achieve joy and acceptance. We do so by upholding our number one rule – HAVE FUN!  And we have plenty of opportunities to do so.  Fall Sports: Bocce, Softball; Winter Sports: Alpine Skiing, Floor Hockey; Summer Sports: Aquatics, Basketball, Track and Field, Basketball; Other Sports Flag Football, Bowling

How We Do It

We are managed and coached by a caring cooperative of volunteers. Without them, we could not exist. We rely on volunteers in many aspects of practices and competitions. Whether you have a little time to commit or a lot, there is a volunteer opportunity waiting for you any time of the year. Volunteer roles are based on your interest and availability, as well as the needs of the team and programs. You can coach an athlete or help with paperwork, hand out awards or celebrate a victory, time a runner or plan a social event or fundraiser. No matter what you do, you’re touching the lives of our team members.
