Local Programs

Special Olympics North Carolina is organized at the grassroots level with nearly 100 accredited local programs serving almost every county in the state.  Most local programs are organized by county.  Local programs are managed by local coordinators who oversee all aspects of the program ranging from athlete registration to fundraising to organizing local training and competition.

To become an athlete, an individual must first complete an athlete participation form which entails a physical examination and submit this form to the local program where s/he lives.
