Lockmar Elementary has a Special Olympics team. Special education students 8 yrs and older are eligible to participate. A physical from a doctor and signed parent note is all that is required.
We participate in basketball and track and field. Students learn sportsmanship, they develop friendships and they have a wonderful time, it is something they look forward to each year.
Practices are held during the school day. County and district competitions are held on the weekends. Several other school staff and high school students also serve as volunteers.
Ages 8 and up
