Special Olympics Wisconsin is dedicated to protecting the health and safety of our athletes, volunteers, coaches, officials, staff, and all that contribute to the success of our athletes in training and events. We have implemented a Return to Play plan in accordance with Wisconsin Department of Health Services data to determine phasing of practices and in-person competition.
SOWI is currently in Phase 1 – Small Group Activities. Bowling is a SOWI COVID-19 approved sport for Phase 1 and 2. For more information, visit our Return to Play page.
