Training for Life Campus

TLC front viewThe Training for Life Campus, located at 305 Special Olympics Drive, is a facility on a piece of land spanning more than 16 acres in Jefferson City, MO. This campus will serve current and future Missouri athletes with intellectual disabilities. It is the first facility of its kind in the world, with the purpose of enriching the lives of our athletes. Our athletes will learn the lessons of sport and life that inspire all of us.

The campus will serve as a lifelong community hub and center, and will inspire a new drive in our athletes so that they may continue to develop the physical and social skills they need to be as productive and independent as possible. It will be both symbolic and practical for our athletes, coaches and volunteers, and will represent a real sense of home for future generations of athletes who touch the lives of so many Missourians.

The Training for Life Campus is abuzz with activity. The exterior window installation was completed March 6! A lot of the inside work is progressing, but now it can all get scheduled. SM Wilson is projecting their completion date for mid-May! This means we can move back in in May – and begin programming of Camps, Campus rentals and our week-long Sports Camp for the Campus in June. The better the weather, the better the progress. Thank you for all of the support and patience during the Rebuild – this includes our amazing athletes, staff, board, supporters and fans!
