SCSO is a chapter of Special Olympics Internations, which oversees Special Olympics programs in more than 143 countries, every state in the U.S. and 3 U.S. territories. More than 13,000 athletes participate in Southern California Special Olympics activities with the assistance and support of thousands of volunteers Chapterwide. (From www.sosc.org, 4/30/98)

SCSO was established in 1969 when Olympic gold medalist and current SCSO Board of Governors Chairman Rafer Johnson hosted the first Summer Games. Since then the program has expanded to enable athletes throughout the state to participate year-round. Athletes can join Special Olympics at age five, compete at age eight, and remain in the program throughout adulthood. SCSO operates out of their headquarters located in Santa Monica.
