We are pleased to announce the new Sandwich Community Special Olympics program: the “Sandwich Sailors.” This program is driven by Special Olympics Mass., Cape & Islands Region, with the Sandwich Recreation Department, the Sandwich Student Council, and the National Honor Society. Through the efforts of the Sandwich Recreation Department, we have had a young athletes program that is designed for children with intellectual disabilities from 2-8 years old. Our new program will be for individuals from 8 years old through adulthood.
Special olympics athletes are never charged fees to participate in activities. However, it costs Special Olympics Massachusetts $390 per participant for their uniforms, transportation, and facility fees. We are proud to tell you that all funds raised in our community support our local athletes.

Our goal is to provide individuals with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to participate in seasonal sports, with a chance to take part in Special Olympics Cape & Islands and state tournaments. We want our “athletes” to compete individually and when needed with student volunteers.
Our sports offerings include: soccer, bowling, track & field, and basketball.
In order to provide a quality program, we are asking for a financial donation that will help defray expenses in buying sports equipment, uniforms, travel, and a “pizza party” at the end of the sports season.
