Track and Field Games Information


Track and Field Games

Each May, Team Southwest competes in the Area 7 Track and Field Games at Thornwood High School in South Holland. This event takes place on a Saturday, therefore, transportation will NOT be provided. This event is known as the "big event" for Special Olympics Illinois. Each athlete competes in two events: a running/walking event and a throwing event. Athletes compete against other athletes in a division pre-determined by age and skill level.
