The Virginia Victory Games is a one-day sporting event held annually in Richmond, Virginia for children and adolescents with medically diagnosed visual and/or physical disabilities. These children are not eligible to participate in the Special Olympics because they do not have any mental deficiencies. In order to ensure fair competition, all competitors are classified based on their level of disabilities.

The Virginia Victory Games, formerly known as The Rainbow Olympic Games, was first organized in 1981 in Richmond, Virginia by a group of physical and recreational therapists. The idea was to give young people with disabilities the challenge of athletic competition similar to their non-disabled peers.
The Games were an immediate hit and have been a success each year since. In 1992, The Rainbow Games (as it was called then) became a non-profit organization, relying on contributions from businesses, organizations, and individuals to fund the Games and continue the tradition of offering eligible participants the opportunity to compete at no cost to them.
We are driven to provide a free, fun, and competitive sporting event for children with physical, visual, and/or hearing impairments throughout the state of Virginia. Our goal is to enhance the self-esteem of each competitor and build friendships what will last a lifetime.
The Virginia Victory Games is more than a game of competition; it is where higher self-esteem and confidence are won.
All forms (registration, liability, photo release and medical) must be postmarked by February 1, 2014.
