What We Do > Our Initiatives > SO Get Into It

Educate. Motivate. Activate.

Get into it with Special Olympics South Africa’s Get Into It programme. We developed this initiative to give athletes access to age appropriate online educational and motivational resources which would otherwise be taught in a class environment.

Using a phone, tablet or computer, our young athletes can access:

  • Lessons
  • Activities
  • Videos
  • Athlete stories, and
  • Supplementary material.


Saint Benedict's College currently incorporates the "SO Get Into It" curriculum into the grade 6 curriculum.

SO Get Into It principles are:



SO Get Into It aims to:

  • Help young people discover their true potential, and
  • Teach them how to serve as active agents for change in communities.

This is achieved through school and community-based opportunities and strategies.


Using sport as an experiential component, we want to energise young people to:

  • Unleash their creative leadership potential, and
  • Accept, respect and advocate for people with intellectual disabilities.


We stimulate new ideas on how young SOSA sports stars can:

  • Share experiences
  • Engage in community action, and
  • Action policy change.


The Special Olympics So Get Into It programme can also be presented to groups in a class situation.
