For the thousands of people with an intellectual disability in Western Australia, sport is a way of celebrating and transforming their lives.
In sport, every effort is rewarded with a smile and every journey is more momentous than any victory.
Special Olympics Western Australia (SOWA) provides ongoing sports training and competition for children and adults living with an intellectual disability. Through the network of dedicated volunteers, our programs are offered in 9 sports across Western Australia.
Special Olympics Perth Metro North Region has been established for over 20 years and encompasses the northern corridor of Perth with over 250 members participating in 9 sports. In 2013 under new leadership and direction, the region’s committee will continue overseeing the ongoing sports programs and competition calendar.
“Our measure of excellence is not in breaking records, but in helping each of our athletes to achieve their personal best”
