Special Olympics Kansas
KSSO provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for individuals with intellectual disabilities by giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
The Y Challenger program for children and young adults with special needs shines as an example of how participating in healthy activities can result in not only improved physical fitness but also personal growth, fun and friendships. Individuals 4-30 years of age with physical, developmental and intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive through recreational and social opportunities.

National TaeKwon do
National TaeKwon-Do has been teaching the Chang Hun style of TaeKwon-Do to the community of Shawnee, Kansas since 1992. We have classes from beginning children to adults. Whatever your level, you will be challenged at your own pace.
Studies have shown that children in TaeKwon-Do have an increased sense of responsibility, a decrease in the willingness to take foolish risks, and a higher sense of self-esteem. TaeKwon-Do gives a positive outlet for a child's energy. We promote good behavior through the tenets of TaeKwon-Do and we expect the same at home and in school.
