Unfortunately, due to COVID19 like many other events in 2020/21 SOBC has had to cancel the 2021 Special Olympics BC Summer Games
The 2021 Provincial Summer Games will feature more than 1,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities competing with pride in the 10 SOBC summer sports: 10-pin bowling, athletics, basketball, bocce, golf, powerlifting, rhythmic gymnastics, soccer, softball, and swimming. The participating athletes will be supported by approximately 300 volunteer coaches and mission staff.
The 2021 SOBC Games host community was announced on November 7 at Surrey City Hall, in an event with remarks from SOBC President & CEO Dan Howe, City of Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum, School District No. 36 Board of Education Chair Laurie Larsen, and SOBC – Surrey athlete Ryan Canuel, followed by a rhythmic gymnastics demonstration by SOBC – Surrey athletes Krista Milne and Jennifer Utendale.
We will look forward to a new opportunity to host a Provincial event here in Surrey in the future!
