Our largest annual event, the Indiana Summer Games are held each June on the campuses of Indiana State University and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. Nearly 3,000 athletes and unified partners from across the state compete in a variety of Olympic-type sports, including Bocce, Bowling, Cycling, Horseshoes, Powerlifting, Swimming, Track & Field, and Volleyball.
Like all Special Olympics Indiana events, Summer Games are made possible by the generous contributions of our sponsors, donors, and volunteers—more than 1,500 of whom serve in important roles throughout the three-day event. Thousands of coaches, chaperones, and spectators also take part in the Games, making it a truly incredible celebration of the spirit of Special Olympics.
2020 Summer Games
Due to ongoing concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Special Olympics Indiana announced in March a decision to cancel or postpone all planned in-person activities at the County, Area, and State levels through May, including but not limited to ALPs University and all 10 Area Spring Games. Because the necessary opportunities for training and preparation will no longer be available to competitors this spring, the 2020 Indiana Summer Games will NOT go on as planned on the weekend of June 12-14 in Terre Haute. Alternative options are currently being explored. Learn more.
