2012 Fall Games
December 8 - 9 | Fountain Valley & Irvine
Congratulations to the more than 1,100 Special Olympics Southern California athletes who competed at the 2012 Fall Games.
The athletes scored goals, won medals, and gave out thousands of high-fives at the Games. But most importantly they inspired hope in a brighter future for acceptance, understanding, and unity for everyone.
About the Games
More than 3,000 athletes, coaches, volunteers, family members, and spectators attended Fall Games. Fall Games is the second of two Southern California championships held every year. The Games featured 1,100 athletes from throughout Southern California competing in six fall and winter sports — bowling, floor hockey, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball.
Fall Games also offered free health screenings for Special Olympics Athletes at Healthy Athletes, an Athlete Dance on Saturday night, and Fun Zones.
The 2012 Fall Games were made possible with the help of 300 coaches, 1,000 volunteers, and generous contributions from individuals and corporate sponsors.
Training for Life
Special Olympics Southern California provides free year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
Special Olympics is more than a sports program. Our programs help build the self-confidence of our athletes so they can work and give back to their community. They drive the athletes' determination so they can overcome hurdles. They give families hope that their children, siblings, and relatives will achieve their potential.
We provide people with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to become more physically fit and live happier, healthier, and longer lives.
