The study is about person-centered planning and social inclusion for adults with developmental disabilities. The online survey should only take about 5 minutes of your time.

Follow this link if you are over 18 and wish to participate: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LNNPCL9

Feel free to share this link with others!

One of my athletes asked me if we were going to be able to do Softball practice. I said I hope so. What should I have told him?
I did make this day

Our goal at SOAZ is to empower the over 180,000 Arizonans with intellectual disabilities to be healthy, productive, and respected members of society through our year-round sports training, competitions, and support programs.

Our Mountain Area Coach of the Month goes to Ruby Lane!

Ruby has been a coach since 2001. She started working with Special Olympics the year that she started working at the High School in Payson in 2001. She had never worked with special needs until that time. She has coached/volunteered in bowling, bocce, gymnastics, swimming, snowshoeing and track and field. In 2006 she went to Ames Iowa for the nationals and coached the swimming team.

Thank you for all you do!
