Polar Plunge

For many, Special Olympics is a place where they find an opportunity to participate in their communities, develop belief in themselves, and feel like champions. We are proud to offer a wide variety of sports and competitive events in: Alpine Skiing, Aquatics, Basketball, Bocce, Bowling, Floor Hockey,  Powerlifting, Soccer, Tennis, and Track and Field.  We hope to start volleyball, golf, and possibly a local program at Quantico.  Equipment and training are provided to the athletes free of charge.  

We will be participating again in the Polar Plunge in February 2016 at Virginia Beach and Tim's Rivershore. Please consider joining our team.

Thank you for your support of Greater Prince William Special Olympics
