*Please note: In the 2021-22 season, filling out the registration forms does not automatically mean you’ll be able to participate in everything you signed up for. We might not be able to offer all sports, due to the unique circumstances of this season. Even so, it is still important to fill out your complete registration form with your usual requests. We need to know what athletes and coaches are interested in, so we can make the best possible plans for our community under the circumstances. Thank you for registering and reconnecting with us!

About SOBC – Elk Valley

Special Olympics BC – Elk Valley is based out of Fernie, but also serves Elkford, Sparwood, and South Country up to the Bull River and down to the U.S. border.

In a typical season we offer 5-pin bowling, bocce, golf, and swimming. 

We are currently looking to build our youth programs within the valley – Active start and FUNdamentals for children with intellectual disabilities ages 2 to 11.

At this time we are actively seeking a Secretary and Program Coordinator, as well as coaches and athletes to join our community. Please contact us for more information and to get involved!
