There are 11,318 SOTX basketball athletes in the Lone Star State!
Basketball is SOTX’s third most popular sport (after Athletics and Bowling).
Basketball is one of the favorite Special Olympics Texas Unified Sports, when players with and without intellectual disabilities form teams to play other unified teams. It's a learning experience that's also a lot of fun!
Thank you to all volunteers and sponsors! It is because of your commitment and dedication that SOTX is able to improve the quality of life for our athletes.
Out of safety concerns for athletes, coaches, volunteers and spectators at Special Olympics Texas practices, events and competitions, Special Olympics Texas prohibits the operation or use of drones, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or unmanned aerial systems (UASs) for photography or other use during our practices, events and competitions.
