The powerful social benefits of sport are of particular importance to people with an intellectual disability because one of the first effects of their disability is social isolation. For many Special Olympics athletes, training sessions become the source and the nourishment of their deepest friendships.
Team Saskatchewan takes home gold in the January 9, 2016 Regina Floor hockey tournament. The majority of this team is comprised of Regina athletes and will be representing our city and province in the 2016 Special Olympics National Winter Games on March 1st to 5th in Cornerbrook, Newfoundland.
Special Olympics Regina is a non-profit organization that is operated by a board of volunteers and run by a group of dedicated volunteers to help athletes build friendships, enhance fitness and gain support through sport.
