Rhinelander School District Special Olympics team registration now
The School District of Rhinelander is getting ready to gear up for the upcoming Special Olympic season. Special Olympics is a global organization that provides persons with disabilities year-round sports training and competition.
Individuals interested in joining need to be eight years old to 21 years old (enrolled in High School) and identified as having a cognitive delay, or a developmental disability; that is, functional limitations in both general learning and adaptive skills. The School District of Rhinelander team provides its athletes with training and athletic competitions year round.
Athletes who participate in this organization gain opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience success, and participate in friendships with other Special Olympians through competitions and social events. The team will begin its bowling season September 22 at Hodag Lanes. Athletes must have required Special Olympics paperwork up to date such as a current physical form and release forms in order to practice.
