For more than ten years, Fay School has played host to a Special Olympics basketball tournament, and this year is no exception. On Saturday the school will welcome athletes and volunteers for one memorable day. The Southborough community is invited to stop by and check out the action.
Fay School will welcome Special Olympic athletes to Harlow Gymnasium tomorrow for the regional basketball games of the Massachusetts Special Olympics. This exciting annual event is free and open to the public. Opening ceremonies will begin at 9:30 am, with competition beginning at 10:00 am and running until about 5:00 pm.
Basketball teams will compete in traditional, unified, and skills and drills formats. Fay students and faculty will volunteer throughout the day as scoring officials, opening ceremonies coordinators, drill assistants, and set-up and clean-up crew.
The event highlights the intersection between Fay School’s motto, “You Can If You Will,” and the Special Olympics Athlete’s Oath: “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
