PigskinMadnessEunice Kennedy Shiriver Day

On 24 September 2016, the seventh global Eunice Kennedy Shriver Day (EKS Day) will be celebrated around the world, bringing together people with and without intellectual disabilities in various activities to honor the inspiration, impact and indomitable spirit of Eunice Kennedy Shriver. While over 5.3 million Special Olympics athletes and millions of coaches, families, fans and friends live her legacy and lead our movement every day, we unite on Eunice Kennedy Shriver Day in over 170 countries and thousands of communities to show the world the power of unity to create opportunities of acceptance.

Special Olympics Wyoming is excited to be holding Area V Fall Tournament on Saturday as part of the celebration of this special day!

Our Mission

The mission of Special Olympics Wyoming is to provide year round participation in sports training and athletic competition in a variety of well-coached Olympic-Type sports for individuals with intellectual disabilities by providing athletes with continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness skills, express courage, experience joy and participate in the sharing of talents, skills and friendship with their families, friends, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

Our Philosophy

black logoSpecial Olympics is founded on the belief that people with intellectual disabilities can, with proper instruction and encouragement, learn, enjoy and benefit from participation in individual and team sports, adapted as necessary to meet the needs of those with intellectual and physical limitations.

Special Olympics believes that consistent training is indispensable to the development of an individual’s sports skills. In addition, competition among those of equal abilities is the most appropriate means of testing these skills, measuring progress, and providing incentives for personal growth.
