Region K MATP – ComWell

What Is MATP (Motor Activities Training Program)?

MATP is designed for athletes with severe or profound intellectual disabilities, including athletes with significant physical disabilities who are unable to participate in official Special Olympics sport competitions because of their skill and/or functional abilities. It prepares them for sport-specific activities appropriate for their abilities.

Unlike other Special Olympics competitions, athletes do not compete to win. Instead, the emphasis is on the last part of the Special Olympics Athlete Oath: being brave in the attempt. By being in this program, these athletes were bravely competing to do better than they performed in the past.

Athletes will begin their activities upon arrival.  When complete, awards will be presented and athletes can return to their agency.
