Special Olympics Wisconsin provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in 18 Olympic-type sports for individuals with intellectual disabilities 8 years of age or older. Athletes train in their sport, compete at an area level and may progress to the state level of competition.
After careful consideration of new developments regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the difficult decision to cancel all Special Olympics Wisconsin competitions and practices through August 1. While canceling events and practices is disappointing for athletes who love to train and compete alongside their friends, we know that our love of sport does not compare to the importance of protecting the health of our athletes and their surrounding communities.
We are actively working on a Return to Play plan that will follow SOI/SONA, state and local government guidelines, and most importantly, safeguard the health and safety of our athletes. This plan will take a multi-phase approach to getting athletes back to practicing in small groups of 10, to eventually participating in small regional competitions that will resemble local scrimmages and/or league play. More information on the this plan will be forthcoming.
If you have any questions related to the event cancellations, please email email@example.com.
