Programs and Services
- Each county in Pennsylvania are 100% self sufficient in raising the funds thru gracious donation and fundraisers held throughout the year. A committee is held to ensure all aspects the program is overseen and the program guidelines are held as a whole. Washington County Special Olympics is no different. There is never a charge to any athlete in Special Olympics. Training may begin at the age of 6 (six) and competition begin at the age of 8 (eight). There is no maximum age.
- Last year we added four new sport to our curriculum, bringing our total sports up to 10 sports offered at 16 different training sites. Sports offered are: basketball, bowling, bocce, gymnastics, flag football, floor hockey, softball, swimming, skiing, track & field. We offer trainings in both the Mon Valley and Washington areas for ease of driving for parents, guardians and caretakers. If there is interest in other sports we try to make those happen.
- Volunteers are the backbone of Special Olympics as for any volunteer organization. The time, energy, and enthusiasm of volunteers fuel our movement and makes our athletes' dreams a reality. There is a place for everyone in our program to play a wide variety of roles. Many opportunities exist. We have a facebook page with all activities, to follow our page go to: Washington County Special Olympics.
- Once again our county must raise all the funds to sustain our county 100% for uniforms, facilities, transportation, meals, practices etc.. We are all volunteers and have lives, families and jobs just like so many others. Our goal is to build a more civil society one athlete and one attitude at a time - creating a world of inclusion and mutual respect, without bias or prejudice.
