Get Involved

Special Olympics Nova Scotia is dedicated to enriching the lives of Nova Scotians with an intellectual disability — through sport. We are a not-for-profit, grassroots organization that provides sport training and competition opportunities for athletes of all ages and abilities.

Family members and support people play an important role in Special Olympics.

You can participate in training, accompany athletes to events, coach them, answer their questions and listen to their stories. One of the greatest roles you can play is to encourage and applaud their efforts whenever possible. Ultimately, the decision to get involved in Special Olympics often comes with many questions. The following information is designed to provide some basic information on getting your loved one involved in Special Olympics. Once you do, you’ll find it’s about much more than sports. It’s a program that will give them practical, day-to-day skills that will last them a lifetime.
