Mission Statement

The mission of Special Olympics is 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.

Chesapeake Monthly Council Meetings 
We welcome all parents and volunteers to come out join us at our monthly council meetings. It is your chance to share your suggestions with us and help us build a stronger program for our athletes. Our April Meeting is Tuesday, June 5. We usually meet the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30 pm at AMF Bowling Alley in the meeting room, 112 Medical Parkway, Chesapeake. We plan all of our events, sports, picnics and other programs and need your input and assistance to help our program continue to grow and stay strong. 
Polar Plunge 2018
We had a great turnout of athletes, family and friends at the POLAR PLUNGE on Saturday, February 3. It was a cold day but the sun was out and we were "Freezing For A Reason". Thank you to everyone who came out and who donated to CHESAPEAKE ATHLETES. We raised a lot of money to help our team buy uniforms, go to the state tournaments and continue to add new athletes to our great program.
