About This Quiz

The Special Olympics Sports Department has developed this quiz to be a low-pressure way for people to test their knowledge of this Special Olympics sport. Every question has a single correct answer; if you select an incorrect answer, you know immediately and can choose again. As a result, everyone who takes a quiz instantly knows the correct answer to every question. The questions are drawn from information about coaching on the Sports and Games page.
