Welcome to Special Olympics Guilford/High Point! Special Olympics in High Point is offered through High Point Parks & Recreation. Due to the large number of eligible athletes in Guilford County, there is also a Guilford/Greensboro program.
Athletes cannot train without qualified coaches. We currently need coaches in all sports. Volunteers interested in helping with local competitions, coaching and/or serving on Special Olympics committees should contact Stephanie Hedgecock.
Thank you to the High Point Community Foundation for selecting Special Olympics Guilford/High Point as a grant recipient in 2018! Your generous support helped our athletes receive new sports equipment and uniforms needed to train during the spring season and compete at the 2019 Special Olympics North Carolina Summer Games!
