A reminder that our AGM will be held next Tuesday, June 25th from 6 to 7pm at the Beban Park Social Center, Room 1. We would like to encourage everyone involved in Special Olympics in our community to attend this meeting and have the opportunity to have their voice heard and receive information from the past year and the year to come!
We are a volunteer driven organization and the more people who can help with the effort to promote sport and provide opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities the better the quality of the experience for all involved!
Local Athletes Named to Team BC 2020 Training Squad
Congratulations to Jason Mills (Floor Hockey) and Lorraine Rozzano (5-Pin Bowling) for being named to the Special Olympics Team BC 2020 Training Squad! These dedicated and deserving individuals have qualified for their spots based on their performances in the 2019 Special Olympics BC Winter Games in Greater Vernon.
Canucks Autism Network, in partnership with the Jays Care Foundation invite children and youth living with autism for a fun day of baseball! Come learn about the core life skills inherent to baseball, including: teamwork, communication, determination, resiliency, inclusion, support and courage. Challenger Baseball ensures every athlete has the opportunity to play in a fun and safe environment where they learn to become more independent, build confidence, improve their communication skills, and set and achieve their own personal goals.
CAN Membership is not required.
This event is open to all individuals with autism over 6 years.
If you are, or you know someone who might be interested in playing baseball, this is a great way to try it out in a safe and fun environment! Supported by Canucks Autism Network staff, Jays Care coaches will provide a 90-minute baseball lesson to introduce players to basic baseball skills.
