Special Olympics Snowshoe
Time & Location
About the event
Athletes, ages 8 and up, interested in competing in Snowshoe, may sign up for Special Olympics Snowshoe. We will have an informational meeting via Zoom on Thursday, October 14th at 7:00PM. During the meeting we will go over paperwork, practice/competition information, and rules/policies. Even if you are only curious or need more information, I encourage you to attend the meeting. The roster will be capped at 12 athletes with precedence given to athletes returning from the 2019-20 season. Registration will close October 15th. As always, a waiting list will be created for athletes new to this sport on a first come, first served basis. Athletes on the waiting list will be transferred to the roster starting October 16th, provided there are available spaces.
Practice will be on Saturdays 10-11am at the fields behind Morris Elementary School on Dupont Ave starting October 23rd. The regional competition will be held on December 11th in Chicago, and state competition for those who advance will be at Winter Games February 1-3 in Galena, IL. Athletes competing in a relay must commit to the entire season. Special Connections will cover the cost to participate. TRANSPORTATION TO PRACTICE AND COMPETITIONS ARE EACH ATHLETE'S RESPONSIBILITY. Special Connections buses are not in use.
Below you'll find the lists of paperwork needed for returning athletes, new athletes, and coaches. Completed paperwork is due by Tuesday, October 19th or you will not be able to attend practice. Your Medical Form must be valid through February 4th, 2022. If you need one, it is due no later than Monday, October 25th. I realize this is a short turnaround. If you can't get in to see your doctor in time, then there was an email I sent out this morning with a voucher to get a physical done at a MinuteClinic in CVS at a discounted rate. LATE PAPERWORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, NO EXCEPTIONS!!!
We are in need of a Head Coach for this sport as well as Assistant Coaches to help. If you are interested, please let me know and plan to attend the zoom meeting. The link for the meeting is below.
