As one of the world’s most popular sports, basketball is a big favorite in Special Olympics. Athletes learn teamwork while improving their athletic ability. As in all Special Olympics sports, basketball teams are grouped in competition divisions according to the athletes’ and team’s ability level, age, and gender.
Special Olympics Carroll County (SOCR) is proud to offer athletes of all skill levels an opportunity to play.
In addition to team play, athletes compete in individual contest events, including speed dribbling, target passing, and spot shooting.
