Mission:  To provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community. 
History:  The global Special Olympics movement started on July 20, 1968, when the first International Special Olympics Games were held at Soldier Field, Chicago, Illinois, USA. However the concept of Special Olympics was thought of much earlier, when Eunice Kennedy Shriver started a day camp for people with intellectual disabilities at her home in 1962. Since 1974, when Special Olympics Tennessee (SOTN) became registered as 501(c) (3) non-for-profit organizations, has continued to achieve the original mission.
Sports:   Special Olympics Tennessee supports 32 area programs that include all Tennessee counties.  Area Programs are lead by volunteer teams, who recruit and train athletes, conduct local and area competitions and raise funds to support their efforts. Full participation is granted to every athlete regardless of his or her economic circumstances.  Over 14,500 Special Olympics athletes are registered with Special Olympics Tennessee.
Special Olympics Tennessee offers the following sports: 
Alpine skiing, Aquatics, Athletics (Track and Field), Basketball, Bocce, Bowling, Equestrian, Flag Football, Golf, Powerlifiting, Soccer, Snowboarding, Speed Skating, Tennis, Volleyball.
