Special Olympics Nanaimo Return to Sport Update


Hello everyone,

We’re getting closer to training again with the announcement by SOBC that a Return to Sport (RTS) plan has been developed and can be found on their website including highlights for athletes. You’ll see that they have put the safety of our volunteers, athletes and staff as the top priority in this plan. I encourage everyone to take some time to read the plan as it will give you a better sense of what you program may look like when it starts running again.

SOBC’s return to sport plan includes 12 pilot programs, in four sports (bocce, track, Club Fit and golf) running until the first week of August. Nanaimo has not been chosen to run any of the pilot programs but once the pilot programs are complete these sports may be opened to our Local.

SOBC will be working over the summer to get the specific sport plans ready for our fall sports and we will share this info with you as soon as we’re able to.

If you have any questions about the Return to Sport plan, SOBC has put together a FAQ that may answer it for you.

We thank you for your patience as we work through these tough times and look forward to getting back to sport as soon as we can!!

“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
