Local Training Programs

We make training convenient for everyone with a wide variety of programs in a town near you!

Special Olympics New Jersey is organized into 13 area programs.  Each area is managed by a committee and each serves athletes in one, two or three counties. Within each of these area programs there are Local Training Programs (LTP).  These LTPs can be community, school or organization-based. Some LTPs train and compete in multiple sports throughout the year while others are seasonal and may only offer one sport. Athletes can participate in multiple training programs.

Learn about your local area program and the sports offered below. If you have any questions, contact the Area Director or fill out the athlete registration form and we will get back to you.
