Special Olympics Maine

Special Olympics Maine provides training and competition in 75 sports events at the local, area and state level. Special Olympics also offers a Unified Sports Program in several sports, where persons with and without disabilities can train and compete together, in many cases, establishing long-term friendships. We also offer Unified Sports through our Unified Champion Schools. Students with and without disabilities can compete side by side on the same track, court, or playing field. Our program is divided into Areas by county/counties, which are run by volunteer Area Managers & Area Management Teams. Participating teams are comprised of athletes & coaches from public schools, group homes, day programs, communities and individual families. Maine presently offers training and competition opportunities to over 4,500 athletes statewide. We hold Coaches Training Schools , in each sport that we offer and an annual Coaches College. Except for 6 full-time employees in the state office, all other positions are filled by volunteers. VOLUNTEERS ARE, without a doubt, the BACKBONE of our program! Our Special Olympic Maine athletes also have the potential opportunity of attending Regional competitions in other states and International competitions, as well. Special Olympics offers competition opportunities to its athletes from over 180 countries at World Summer Games and World Winter Games every four years. Maine also has the rather unique privilege of offering unstructured summer camping opportunities to our athletes and supporters at a camp that was given to us several years ago, known as Camp Tall Pines. With the generosity of the American Legion, and the Maine Law Enforcement community, as well as the manpower efforts of several civic-minded groups, we have since built two year-round cottages on the property, which makes it available during our winter months for training, instruction and leisure.
