About the Motor Activity Program
The Special Olympics Motor Activity Training Program is designed for athletes with severe or profound intellectual disability who are unable to particpate in Official Special Olympics sport competitions because of their skill and/or functional abilities.
The Motor Activity Training Program is designed to prepare athletes with severe or profound intellectual disability, including athletes with significant physical disabilities, for sport-specific activities appropriate for their abilities.
The Motor Activity Training Program Coaching Guide
Special Olympics coaching guides are the key source of coaching information for our volunteer coaches worldwide. The guides are written by experts in the sport who understand that people with intellectual disabilities need extra time and attention to master new skills. The guides are helpful to anyone teaching a sport but are especially valuable when coaching Special Olympics athletes.
