|With emphasis on training and participation through activities and play, rather than competition, the Young Athlete Program provides children ages 2-7 with gross motor skills training, group interaction and socialization opportunities. These basic skills will prepare the Young Athletes for future participation in Special Olympics sports. The Young Athlete Program has officially replaced the Play Activities Program.
