About VIP


The purpose of VIP (Very Inspirational People) is to provide the opportunity for individuals with developmental disabilities to participate in competitive athletic, social and recreational activities.

VIP is an all volunteer non-profit organization of volunteers from all walks of life. It was established in 2002 by parents, athletes and coaches of Special Olympics in the Sacramento, CA area to provide more competitions opportunities and social interaction for the athletes.

It started with Floor hockey in 2003 and over the next few years added Swimming, Bocce, and Basketball. Track and Field and Soccer were the last sport competitions to be added with soccer starting in 2013.

We are working to create a rewarding and quality experience for inspirational athletes with developmental disabilities as well as for the volunteers, sponsors and families.
