2024 Summer Sports Season

Summer Sports Season Coming Up Fast

We haven’t quite made it to the State Summer Games, but it’s already time to start thinking about the 2024 summer sports season. The summer sports season includes softball and and golf, and while is our smallest season, there are still opportunities for everyone.

Softball

The Special Olympics Kentucky softball leagues start July 9 Louisville and July 10 in Georgetown. Teams outside those areas often play scrimmages or tournaments in their own regions. There are also invitational tournaments held by local programs throughout the summer. The season leads up to three regional tournaments from which teams qualify for the State Softball Tournament which will be held in September.

Golf

Golfers start their season with clinics and practices in June that lead to a three-tournament qualifying season. Golfers compete at three levels skills, Unified alternate shot and individual stroke play. Skills is for new golfers and golfers who aren’t yet ready to take to the course. It tests a golfer’s abilities in six standard golf shots and is a fantastic introduction to the sport. Unified alternate shot is for more advanced golfers and pairs a Special Olympics athlete with a Unified partner and the pair take turns hitting shots until the ball is holed. Individual stroke play is for the most advanced golfer and involves the Special Olympics golfer playing their own ball for the entire round.
