Revere Special Olympics Programs Begin September 30 - Volunteers and Participants Wanted!

September 8, 2017

The City of Revere and Mayor Brian Arrigo are proud to support an expanded presence this fall for the Special Olympics program, as part of the Mayor’s ongoing effort to provide more free programming for Revere youth.

In addition to the return of the Young Athletes program for kids age 2-7, Revere will also debut a soccer program for kids age 5-15. Both programs are free for all children and begin on September 30.

The Special Olympics Jr. Soccer Skills program is open to kids of all skill levels age 5-15. Sessions will be held on Saturdays at 11:45am-12:45pm from September 30-November 4, on the field at Paul Revere School. The field will be newly striped for soccer and nets will be installed. 

The Young Athletes program returns again this fall, a unique sports and play program for children age 2-7 designed to serve as an introduction to sports and the world of Special Olympics. Sessions will be held in the Paul Revere School gym on Saturdays from 11:00am-11:45am, from September 30-November 4.
