Healthy Athletes


Did you know that Special Olympics Louisiana offers free health examinations for our athletes? Healthy Athletes is a large part of our organization.  Our athletes are screened through Special Smiles, Healthy Hearing, Health Promotion, Fit Feet, Fun Fitness, and Opening Eyes.  Our athletes are screened, free of charge, at our state competitions.  Athletes also receive a “goody” bag for Special Smiles and Health promotion filled with lots of great tools to keep up the good work! Come out and find the booth at our State Games!

Athlete Leadership Program


Did you know? Special Olympics Athlete Leadership Program empowers athletes to explore opportunities for greater participation in our movement beyond sports training and competition: as coaches, officials, spokespeople, and Board and committee members. Athlete leaders are an integral part of the Special Olympics Movement and help Special Olympics leaders stay in touch with athletes’ interests. This way we can ensure that our programs remain vital and attractive to the people we serve.

  • Athletes on Program Boards of Directors
  • Athletes on Games Evaluation Teams
  • Global Messenger
  • Athlete Congress or Input Councils
  • Athletes as Volunteers
  • Athletes employed by Special Olympics
  • Athletes as contributors to newsletters and Web sites
