What is SOTX? (Special Olympics Texas)

At Special Olympics Texas, there is a place for everyone, from athlete to coach, volunteer to sponsor, and more. Be a part of Special Olympics Texas and feel proud about your involvement in the movement that is changing lives!

Athletes
A world of opportunity awaits! In addition to offering 22 sports for athletes to compete in, Special Olympics Texas provides athletes a wide variety of ways to get involved in the movement. From competing to public speaking to becoming an athlete coach, Special Olympics Texas gives athletes the tools to succeed.

Coaches
As a Special Olympics Texas coach, you have the power to lead athletes and shape their lives in a positive way. Special Olympics Texas offers volunteers a variety of sports to coach, along with coaches training sessions to fully prepare them to take on the coaching role.

Families
Families are important supporters of Special Olympics Texas. As a family member, you are instrumental in providing committed dedication to our athletes and sharing input on ways to improve the program.

Sponsors
Your dollars and in-kind gifts have the power to change lives. Special Olympics Texas could not operate without the support of sponsors. Your generosity funds year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Texas. In addition to financial contributions, as a sponsor, you can see your gift in action through volunteer opportunities.

Volunteers
Without the dedication of thousands of volunteers, our athletes would not be able to compete to their fullest abilities or experience the joys that come from participating in Special Olympics Texas. Anyone can volunteer; each person brings their own unique talents and contributions. From coaching to serving refreshments, each volunteer makes a difference.
