Programs: MSOA addresses the need for recreation for persons with mental retardation. MSOA's program seeks to develop sports teams made up of individuals with and without mental retardation at the middle school level for expansion into the high school level, and eventual inclusion into the regular school-based athletic schedule ($150,000). One of MSOAs recent accomplishments was unified sports development in 38 Massachusetts middle schools.
The mission of Special Olympics Massachusetts (SOMA) is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of well-coached Olympic-type sports for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Special Olympics Massachusetts also provides athletes with continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, prepare for entry into school and community programs, express courage, experience joy, and participate in the sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics Athletes, and the community.
