About Us

Special Olympics Sioux Falls

Athlete Oath

Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.


The Mission of Special Olympics South Dakota and the Sioux Falls Fireworks is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children (8 years and older) and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

Sioux Falls Fireworks operates under Special Olympics South Dakota (SOSD). We serve over 350 athletes and is supported by over 150 volunteers. The Sioux Falls Fireworks have no paid staff which means that any donations to us go directly back to serving our athletes.
