SUMMER GAMES YOUNG ATHLETES FESTIVAL

Saturday June 8 & Sunday, June 9

Children with and without intellectual disabilities, ages 2 - 7, are introduced to sports during the Young Athletes Festival at Summer Games. They showcase skills they have learned in a school or community program at our Festival and Rising Stars Experience. Rising Stars gives young athletes, ages 6 and 7, the opportunity to apply their talents in a sport-specific event. This year, Rising Stars will include Basketball, Bocce and Athletics. Spectators and families are encouraged to watch them compete and cheer them on.
