Covid19 Pandemic

Communication from Provincial Office March 13, 2020

Special Olympics BC is making the difficult decision to pause all community weekly training, all competitions, and all face to face fundraising events from March 13 to March 31, 2020.

Special Olympics BC will continue to follow the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation daily, and will communicate further with members.

We will assess, address, and communicate what the postponement of the Regional Qualifiers in this period means for qualifying for the 2021 SOBC Summer Games. Please stay tuned for further information. We commend and thank all the athletes who have been training hard for these competitions, and all the volunteers and families who have been working so hard to plan them.

To help athletes stay active during this hiatus, everyone can check out the at-home training and health resources on the Special Olympics BC website. We will also continue our social media posts celebrating Special Olympics BC members as well as sharing wellness reminders and resources. So please do feel free to suggest everyone can talk with us on social media to stay connected and encouraged!

Thank you for your patience at this time. The health and safety of Special Olympics BC program and event participants remain our top priorities. If you have any questions or feedback, please contact Lois McNary, SOBC Vice President, Sport, at lmcnary@specialolympics.bc.ca or 604-737-3117 office / 604-616-1341 cell.
