A Special Olympics basketball competition will be held Friday at Granada High School in Livermore.
Here are the details:
- 9:30 a.m. — Opening Ceremonies
- 10 a.m. to noon — Competition
- Who: Special Education classes representing middle and high schools from Dublin, Pleasanton and Livermore, plus general education peers participating as volunteers.
The event is part of the Schools Partnership Program with Special Olympics, and will be the first program held in Livermore.
"This Basketball tournament represents the expansion of Special Olympics Northern California's Schools Partnership Program into Tri-Valley," said Cathy DeVries, vice president of schools and youth services. "After a successful soccer competition in Dublin, the collaboration between school districts, has made it possible for Special Olympics to develop a strong program for the Tri-Valley. Further expansion will be possible with additional funding and support from individuals and corporations that call the Tri-Valley home."
A track and field training culminating in a track meet is scheduled on May 23 at Dublin High School.
