Special Olympics at LCCC

Special Olympics at LCCC

The joy of the Special Olympics is ready to return to the spotlight at LCCC.  The 14th annual North Section Basketball Tournament is set to be played at Oberlin College March 6th – 8th due to the renovations at LCCC’s facilities.  The tournament will bring more than 500 athletes with mental retardation or other developmental disabilities together for a weekend of competition and comradery.

The Special Olympics Basketball Tournament is sponsored by LCCC’s Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Student Life office.  This year's games will be held at Oberlin College. 

Volunteers make this event happen!  We need you!  Success happens because of the commitment from our community with their time and talents.  We need scoreboard operators, scorers, announcers, singers, pep bands, cheerleaders, youth groups, artists to paint signs and concession operators to name a few.  Groups or individuals are also needed for the “Adopt-a-Team” program in which specific groups are “attached” to a specific team and serve as their “fans.”  The impact of the “Adopt-a-Team” program is heartwarming. 

“The tournament at LCCC,” said North Section Special Olympics Director Joe Antonucci, “is looked upon by Special Olympics Ohio as one of its best events and the involvement from the LCCC students, staff and community is amazing.”

The Special Olympics Tournament is scheduled on the following dates and times…

March 6, Friday, 5:30 pm – 11:00 pm

March 7, Saturday, 9:30 am – 5:00 pm

March 8, Sunday,  10:00 am – 3:30 pm

If you are interested in volunteering or have questions, please contact the LCCC Student Life Office at 1-800-995-5222 (ext 4747).
