Athletics was the sport that got Kerry Stars Special Olympics Club on the road to where we are today. We started with a small group of families getting together on Monday evenings to get active and have fun. Now we have almost 100 Athletes taking part in a range of different sports and programmes.
In Athletics competitions, Athletes take part in everything from a simple activity such as ‘The Tennis Ball Throw’, to a 100m Run and right up to a Pentathlon. Athletes are given the chance to try every activity and to pick two which suit them best! In Special Olympics, Athletes compete within divisions of equal ability.
We train indoors during autumn and winter with a range of fun activities. We bring our Athletes outdoors to an Athletics track for the Spring and early Summer. We also take part in Inter-club fun events with the other Special Olympics Clubs in Kerry.
If you want to participate or get involved in the coaching side, we would love to have you. Please contact our club secretary Geraldine at 0872365664 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
