This year, there is a new housing process. As you can see in the Registration Packet, there is no Housing Form included. This is because the Housing Form will not be provided to delegations until after they have submitted registration and participants have been verified for eligibility (Oct. 4 deadline). You can note your roommate assignments early, but Special Olympics Virginia is waiting until we have the verified participation group before we have you complete your Housing Form. We will maintain the typical deadline for providing your housing confirmation two weeks prior to competition (Oct. 21).
Special Olympics Virginia’s aim is that the new system simplifies the housing process for delegations. There will be a learning curve but it should take much less time for you now than in the past. Upon submission of your Registration Packet, we will provide you a delegation report of all of your verified participation with gender, date of birth, wheelchair/accessibility and diet needs stored already completed, there is no need for you re-enter that on the Housing Form. The only items you will need to complete in the updated Housing Form are the names of participants and their roommate assignments.
