A Special Olympics Team Since 1991
South Region Stars
BOCCE – JULY 19
The team plans to have practice this evening unless there is a downpour or lightening. There are very few weeks to practice before Area so dress appropriately if it’s drizzling. Final call will be made by Coach Liza – email@example.com.
Congratulations to the more than 120 Stars who competed in the Summer Games June 22-24. Teams representing Aquatics, Basketball, and Track and Field were all winners – so brave, so inspirational, and so good. Your families, friends, coaches, and staff are so proud of you.
Meet the Stars

Our athletes find joy, confidence and fulfillment — on the playing field and in life. We know no boundaries. Without regard to gender, race, religion, economic or education level, Special Olympics has the ability to unite all walks of life.
