Developmental Sports Implementation Guide and Sports Specific Resources
Developmental sports provides an age-appropriate introduction to sports for children with and without intellectual disabilities, ages 6-12 years old. Resources for Developmental sports include a comprehensive implementation guide and sport-specific curricula from Special Olympics sport federation partners. These sport-specific, inclusive, and age appropriate activities are not meant to be structured as a new Special Olympics program or initiative, but rather can be used to support a child’s transition to traditional Special Olympics participation, or as an introduction to Unified Sports.
