USA & World Games

The Special Olympics USA Games provide a stage to showcase the abilities of Special Olympics athletes—both on and off the playing field. These events also showcase signature initiatives of Special Olympics such as Unified Sports, Healthy Athletes, Athlete Leadership Programs, and provide life-transforming experiences for volunteers and spectators who participate in or view the USA Games.

The 2022 USA Games will be held in Orlando Florida June 5-12. The USA Games will unite more than 5,500 athletes and coaches from all 50 states and the Caribbean and 125,000 spectators during one of the country’s most cherished sporting events. The Games will offer 19 Olympic-style team and individual sports, including athletics (track & field), basketball, bocce, bowling, cheerleading, equestrian, flag football, golf, gymnastics, open water swimming, powerlifting, soccer, softball, stand up paddleboard, surfing, swimming, tennis, triathlon, and volleyball. For over 50 years, Special Olympics has been empowering athletes and encouraging a more inclusive world for those with intellectual disabilities and beyond.
