Special Olympics Ulster

In the Ulster Region we have 90 Clubs that are affiliated to Special Olympics Ireland.  Special Olympics Clubs, Schools and Adult Centres can affiliate to Special Olympics and  take part in Special Olympics training, events and sports competitions throughout the year.

Capacity permitting, community based clubs are open to anyone over the age of 6 with an intellectual disability within the immediate locality.  
Service based groups are also mostly based in local communities - they include residential centres, special schools, workshops and day activation units etc. They usually only provide a Special Olympics programme to people within their service.

Get Involved

For new athletes to get involved you first of all have to find a Club - see below the list of Special Olympics Community based Clubs in the Ulster Region.  
Contact Special Olympics Ulster for more information on any of these Clubs and how to join.

If you would be interested in setting up a Special Olympics Club in your area contact the Ulster Regional Office for more information
