**IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT**

After careful consideration of new developments regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the difficult decision to cancel all Special Olympics Wisconsin competitions and practices through May 31. While canceling events and practices is disappointing for athletes who love to train and compete alongside their friends, we know that our love of sport does not compare to the importance of protecting the health of our athletes and their surrounding communities.

If you have any questions related to the event cancellations, please email info@specialolympicswisconsin.org.

Basketball “bounced” its way into competition at the 1968 Special Olympics World Games and has grown to include over 69,000 athletes from the US Program and 40 countries. As one of the world’s most popular sports, basketball is a favorite among athletes. Special Olympics basketball teaches teamwork and skills of the game.

Basketball teams are grouped in divisions according to the athletes’ ability level. Please view this informational video on how an athlete’s skill level is evaluated in the game of basketball.
