Each year our club sponsors and organizes a Special Olympics Basketball Tournament as part of Special Olympics Michigan. The tournament consists of teams throughout the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and takes place at the Escanaba Area High School Gymnasium.
The mission of Special Olympics Michigan is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
Athletes develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage and experience joy while participating in the sharing of gifts, skills and friendship among their families, Special Olympics athletes and the community. The athletes achieve their dreams with the support of caring volunteers, coaches, family members and staff. Donations from Michigan citizens and businesses provide funding for the program.
