Special Olympics BC – Chilliwack has 65 athletes who participate in 10 local sport programs.
Programs are run by volunteers and volunteer coaches from September to June. Skill improvement, cardio, fitness, and strength development are key elements to each weekly training session. See the downloads section for current program schedule. To register as an athlete, please contact Anita Unrau.
SOBC – Chilliwack is proud to have two athletes that have won gold medals at the last two Special Olympics World Games and have had many reach the podium at regional, provincial, and national levels of competition.
We are looking for volunteers who would like to be a part of our Local Committee to ensure that our programs continue to grow and give local athletes an opportunity to participate in sport. Please contact Judy Garrett if you would like to help.
