I promise to give the time in my life, so that Special Olympics athletes an have the time of their lives.
I promise to support Special Olympics not just as an expression of charity, but as a form of respect for my fellow human beings.
I promise to spread the word of volunteerism because in giving, I receive so much more in return.
Join the Fort Bend Falcons family as an athlete! Come practice with us, play an individual sport or join a team. It's always a fun time for our athletes and their families.
We’re looking for teammates with a passion for learning a new sport, improving their skills and making new friends. We take pride in our coaching and the training they give our athletes.
Athletes must be an FBISD student with a minimum age of 8 years old with an intellectual disability or a closely related development disability.
To join one or all of our sports, all athletes must have a completed medical release on file before they can participate in practices or competitions. Please bring a copy of the athlete's completed medical form to the coach at the first practice of a sport and retain the original in your files.

Fort Bend Falcons
Falcons coaches teach our athletes the sporting skills they need to play a sport and how to compete in various athletic events. Our coaches need not only the ability to teach how to play a sport but the ability to help our athletes be more aware of their skills, instill in the athletes confidence, courage, and leadership. Special Olympics Texas requires coaches to promote fair competition, organize and run training programs and to teach all coaches the rules. A coach must be certified by Special Olympics Texas through their Coach Education System and their six step process.
The information for becoming a certified coach can be found on the Special Olympics Texas website under Get Involved.
Volunteers are the lifeline of Special Olympics Texas and the Fort Bend Falcons are no exception. Falcons' volunteers assist in a variety of ways including chaperoning our athletes at practices and competitions, training and coaching.
There is no experience needed to volunteer for the Fort Bend Falcons. Special Olympics of Texas requires a registration process be completed prior to volunteering.
A volunteer must submit a Class A Volunteer application, view a general and protective behavior slideshows. A volunteer must also complete a criminal background check.
The volunteer forms and background check can be found on the Special Olympics of Texas website under Get Involved.
