Special Olympics Basketball continues to grow as a sport in the state of Tennessee. Over 100 teams compete each year in either a local, regional or state competition. All three state sanctioned events are played as 5v5 full court games, however, some local programs may offer other formats such as 3v3 or a skills competition. Any athletes interested in joining a team should first contact their area director.
