HISD’s Special Olympics Field Days, which were postponed in April because of inclement weather, gives students with intellectual and developmental disabilities a chance to showcase their athletic skills by taking part in fun athletic contests. The friendly competition includes basketball, tennis, soccer, and track and field for all ages, as well as flag football for high-schoolers.

All field days will take place at Butler Stadium, located at 13755 Main Street. Volunteers will be provided with on-site instructions and modeling for their specific assignment so they are prepared to work with students.
