About Us


Team Photo 1996
  Someone once asked me when the Huber Heights Special Olympics Team got started.

I thought about it and realized I didn’t know. You see when my family joined the team, (Yes! It is a family thing, not just a child thing), someone had already started a team.

Her name is Kathy Kleiser and the year was 1996. The team as you can see, was small in the beginning.

Kathy had been doing Special Olympics a few years when we joined in. If I remember correctly, the other coaches
were the same ones as today, Joan Bostlmen and Vicki Rhea. I remember she asked me to be a coach because having
boys on the team and only women as coaches would not work. I was a bit nervous at first, but I quickly found that I
loved it and now many years later, I still love helping these guys!


If you would like me to continue this story,
please let me know.


Our first year we went to State with the dream team. Four years later we took ten athletes and four Coaches to State!

Below is our Team Pic from that 2000 event. Its was held at Worthington High School, in Columbus, OH which is about 10 miles north of the Ohio State University Campus. This was were we did the track and field while the Jesse Owens Stadium was being built.

  Below is our 2009 State Team Photo.
