Families are the No. 1 fans of our Special Olympics athletes. They give the type of love, support and encouragement that no one else can. Special Olympics Samoa is a support network that brings families together in a caring, positive way – and that makes the cheers for our athletes even louder.


Families with members who have an intellectual (learning) disability are like other families; however, having a family member with special needs can sometimes introduce new and different challenges for families. Getting involved with Special Olympics Samoa gives families a chance to meet other families who have undergone similar challenges.

 Building Communities

Many family members become spokespeople or volunteers, coaches, fund-raisers and officials – giving them an important voice in Special Olympics.


Families are also an essential link to the community and wider support for our movement. By joining the Family Support Network, becoming a volunteer, and leading the expansion of Young Athletes, Special Olympics family members can really make a difference.


Families build communities by volunteering at athletic trainings, sharing links and information, talking online via a global network and serving in leadership roles. For every family member who gets involved, Special Olympics has a reason to celebrate.
