Non-Competitive Sports Offer

The Non-Competitive Sports Offer (NCSO) is an integral part of Special Olympics events. It provides activities manageable for any level of ability. It aims to foster encounters for people with and without disabilities and to create positive experiences that motivate further physical activity.

On the photo, there is a child dribbling through a parcour with a football. The station is part of the Non-Competitive Sports Offer.
The NCSO will be open for everyone with or without a disability including:

  • Athletes who cannot participate in official Special Olympics sports competition due to their skill and/or functional abilities
  • Participating athletes, Unified Partners, coaches, volunteers and supervisors
  • Family members and friends
  • People without disability, including school classes, kindergartens, spectators
At the very front of the photo is a pyramid of cans. In the background a boy has just thrown a ball to knock over these cans. This station is part of the Non-Competitive Sports Offer.
General program overview:

  • Number of stations: 16
  • There is no fixed order or number of stations to be completed.
  • The route card lists all of the available stations. For each completed station, the participant gets a stamp.
  • Each activity can be adapted according to the participant's ability level.
  • Each participant is honored on stage with award ceremony music and a participation ribbon.
  • The NCSO has no competitive element, the focus is on everyone enjoying their own personal success.
