Adaptive / Special Olympics

Disabilities don’t exist at the Missoula Family YMCA. We see the abilities that everyone has! Everyone, regardless of ability, should participate in Y programming. And to encourage that participation, we have developed activities for those individuals with special needs. We consider ourselves the headquarters for Special Olympics athletes to train—no matter the season or sport. We provide coached practices for a variety of sports as well as a chance for athletes to get out and socialize together. We are also the home for the Five Valleys Area Special Olympics Program.  The YMCA Adult Special Olympics Team, “The Willy Otters” is our adult team!  For school-age athletes, we have the name and telephone number for the local program coordinators at your school, so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
