Special Olympics Pennsylvania (SOPA) is the accrediting body for more than 50 area, county and city programs within Pennsylvania. The individuals who act as area and county managers and comprise their management teams are primarily volunteers. They raise funds, oversee volunteers, and help recruit athletes, while providing the all-important training and competition opportunities for their local athletes.
Our athlete count now stands at more than 20,000. SOPA is at work in every county in Pennsylvania. Continuing to reach into communities and into their elementary and secondary schools, parks and recreation departments, and work settings to enroll new athletes, coaches, and volunteers remains a top priority with SOPA.
The following are SOPA area, county and city programs:
