WHO ARE WE?
The Treaty Stars Academy was established specifically to run the Special Olympics Young Athlete programme for young children with special needs in Limerick and the surrounding areas.
Our team of coaches are trained to deliver the programme to bring out the best in the athletes and help in the personal development.
Along with our coaches, we have a group of dedicated volunteers who give their time to ensure all our athletes get the attention they all deserve.
If you have a child with special needs or would like to get involved with the club, please feel free to call or email us.
