- Special Olympics Athlete Oath
The mission of Special Olympics Texas (SOTX) is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in the sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
The Team Plano delegation is a community based delegation for athletes of all ages. We have approximately 200 active athletes who have an opportunity to compete in 8 different sports. Some play several, others compete in a single sport. We compete at Special Olympics Texas Area 10 and State level competitions. Practices are evenings and/or weekends. Most of our athletes live in PISD or nearby (but participation is not limited by residency).
