Isle of Man

Founded in 1985 Special Olympics Isle of Man is proud to be a part of the Special Olympics family, helping men, women and children with intellectual disabilities through sport. Some people think that Special Olympics involves just a few days of games once or twice a year. In reality, the training never stops and is as important as the competition itself. Special Olympics Isle of Man offers a lifetime of learning through sport, and benefits individuals on the island of all ages and ability level, from those with low motor abilities to highly skilled athletes.
