Special Olympics Northern California is excited to send a delegation of athletes, coaches and Unified partners to participate in the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games in Orlando.

The USA Games happen just once every four years and bring together athletes from across the country to showcase their skills on a national stage. Team NorCal is comprised of 18 athletes, two Unified partners and five coaches who will take part in track and field, swimming and Unified golf. Learn more about the USA Games.

We’re teaming up with pro sports teams and athletes, college icons, gold-medalist Olympians, media personalities & more to surprise each member of Team NorCal with their selection.
