Be Part of the Team!

Ashley Moore is the newly appointed director of the Special Olympics in Gilmer County.

She wants students to know that they are getting ready to start volleyball practices and are still looking for Special Olympic athletes.  Participants must be at least 8 years old.

Practices will be on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the Board Office gym on Van Horn Drive.  The only games are tournament play which will be held on Nov. 5th.

For the winter months, they will offer skiing; basketball is offered in the spring.

This will be a fun learning experience for your child(ren).  If you are interested in having your child participate, or for more information, contact Ashley Moore by email at or through the Special Olympics Gilmer County Facebook page.
