Local and regional competitions
Competitive programs begin at the local level, and depending on an athlete's interest and abilities, there are opportunities to compete at regional, provincial/territorial, national and international levels.
Local and regional competitions occur throughout the year, which are qualifiers for Provincial and Territorial Games. All athletes can take part in local competitions.
Community activities - just for fun!
Our Chapters offer a wide variety of sport programs and group activities for children, youth, and adults, in addition to the competition system. Local events are run by volunteers and coaches trained by each Provincial and Territorial Chapter.
Special Olympics Chapters and community teams engage in many fundraising activities to support the programs offered across the country to thousands of children and adults. There's something for everyone - and if you don't see the type of event you're interested in, host your own!
