Springbrook has proudly served as home to the Scorpions Special Olympics basketball team for nearly 25 years. Each January, more than 30 athletes 8-years-old and older try out for spots on the Varsity, Junior Varsity, or Skills teams. A typical season, which runs from January through March, consists of multiple tournaments across New York State—one of which is played on our home court during the Springbrook Invitational Tournament, which takes place annually in March.

Track and Field

As a result of the generosity of The Russel Family, proud Scorpions Sponsors, Springbrook was able to add a track and field team to the list of Special Olympics certified sports that we offer in 2014. Each year, the track and field team has grown in popularity. This small but determined group begins preparing for the April – June season in February. The track and field team, which is open to athletes 8 years old and older, travels to various locations to compete in several meets across New York State, and at our own invitational (annual date subject to availability of competitors).

Springbrook Sprouts is an integrated sports program for kids of all abilities. The program will introduce basic athletic skills while building friendships and sportsmanship. The program is generally held at our Main Campus (Rt 28 just north of Oneonta), with field trips to local activities and runs for 6 weeks every Tuesday and Thursday from 5-6 pm.

Just like our Kids Unlimited Preschool, we are bringing together children with and without disabilities. In this setting, children can learn from each other; when all can participate, everybody wins! Our Springbrook Scorpions athletic team boasts some of the most talented coaches in the region. Your child will benefit from quality structured instruction while having fun in a supportive environment!

For more information about the Sprouts Program or to sign-up your child, please contact Nicole Sokolowski today!


Springbrook has supported a soccer team since 2008, but undoubtedly the most exciting occurance in Scorpions Athletics took place in the summer of 2018 when the Scorpions Soccer Team represented New York State at the Special Olympics Summer USA Games in Seattle, WA. Soccer continues to be a growing and popular sport for athletes 8 years old and above, with a Varsity, JV, and Skills team participating in a fall season. Look for the Springbrook Invitational Tournament at Family Day in September!
