San Francisco

San Francisco County is proud to offer training and competitions in 10 sports for Special Olympics athletes. Volunteers enjoy working with the athletes to prepare them for competitions. San Francisco County offers a wide range of skill levels so that athletes can train with their peers of equal skill levels.


Starting in the spring of 2015, athletes will be required to register for the sport(s) they are interested in participating in for the upcoming season. Practice Registration Periods will take place 1-2 months prior to the start of the first practice session for a given sport. Athletes must have a current Application for Participation on file with SONC in order to register. For information about upcoming and current Practice Registration Periods for San Francisco County, please click here.


San Francisco County also offers the Schools Partnership Program, which is a unique education program in K-12 public schools. This program is about more than sports – it is a valuable education program that truly creates a school culture of inclusion and fosters understanding in schools and communities. Students organize campus activities to create climates of inclusion, acceptance and respect for all. See what it’s all about, visit
