Return to Activities Update from Special Olympics Virginia

Update as of June 29, 2020

The health and safety of our athletes and volunteers continue to be paramount. Special Olympics Virginia will adopt the Return to Activities (R2A) Plan as designed by Special Olympics Inc. In order to provide all the information necessary for safe return as well as appropriate volunteer and coach training opportunities, Special Olympics Virginia will begin the first phase of return to activities August 1, 2020.

In July, Area leadership, coaches and volunteers will receive the Return to Activities Plan and will be provided dates for training opportunities. The Return to Activities start date of August 1, 2020 includes any event (sports, fundraising or social) that involve athlete participation. Guidelines regarding fundraising events that do not include athletes also are being developed and will be shared soon.

We appreciate your patience as we work through this and look forward to having our athletes active again. If you have any questions, please contact Dave Pawlowski.
