In March of 2015 the Shining Stars became an official Special Olympics New Jersey (SONJ) Local Training Program (LTP). The affiliation with SONJ gives the Shining Stars athletes the opportunity to compete at a local, regional, state or maybe even a national and international level in a variety of sports. 

Shining Stars will be offering training opportunities for interested athletes and will enroll any athlete into any competition.
