Amador Valley Athletic Boosters hosting

Special Olympics Northern California Events 

This is the 19th year that the Amador Valley Athletic Boosters have hosted these Special Olympics Games.
We originally hosted these events to give our athletes at Amador Valley an opportunity to "give back" to the community.  Many other schools, churches a
nd community groups now participate.   
You'll find this is one of the most enjoyable and satisfying service opportunities in which you will participate.



March 4 , 2023


This is a 1 day event with about 50 teams on Sat,

at 3 locations (Amador Valley High School, Harvest Park and Pleasanton Middle Schools) on 11 courts. 

AGE Requirement: Volunteers must be High School age or older, unless with Parent or older sibling.  Families with younger children (under 12) can participate as Team Escorts which is fun for all ages.
