Students invited to join Special Olympics sports teams
CCSD 89 offers a Special Olympics athletics program that provides all students opportunities to participate. Students who are eight or older can join the CCSD 89 Special Olympics teams.
The district will run a track-and-field program in the spring. If enough students are interested, the district will also have a basketball team in the winter. Students must be at least eight years old to play on the Special Olympics team.
The district is also looking for peer buddies who will work with the athletes.
Anyone seeking more information about Special Olympics can contact CCSD 89 Special Olympics athletic director Donald Duncan at firstname.lastname@example.org or (630) 858-2770.
