During our winter season, Burlington County offers three Olympic-style individual and team sports that provide meaningful training and competition opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Athletes who participate in winter sports begin practicing in December and compete until February.

If you see a sport you’re interested in but haven’t registered as an athlete, learn how to become an athlete. Athletes that are already registered should contact the local area director to learn about playing a specific sport.
