Amador Valley Athletic Boosters hosting

Special Olympics Northern California Events

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

This is the 16th 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.  Since then many other schools, churches and community groups have participated as individuals and families.  For some families this is an annual family event. 

You'll find that this will be one of the most enjoyable and satisfying service opportunities in which you will participate.

 

 

BASKETBALL

March 9, 2019

 

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. 

This is a wonderful opportunity to help run events for those with intellectual disabilities.
