It’s registration season!

Locals will be sending out information about registration for the 2020-21 sport year.

All Special Olympics BC athletes and volunteers are asked to complete the 2020-21 registration form and waiver. Please know that filling out these forms does not automatically mean you’ll participate in everything you signed up for. Locals might not be able to offer all sports due to the unique circumstances of this season. 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.

*For NEW athletes and volunteers signing up for the first time, please email the contacts below with your completed forms (link above) or to request a registration package.

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.

We currently offer 5-pin bowling, bocce, golf, and swimming. 

For the 2020 winter season we will be offering snowshoeing if we can recruit a coach. 

We are currently looking to build our youth programs within the valley - Active start and Fundamentals. We are actively seeking new volunteers and athletes to join our community and are interested in expanding the programs we offer, so please contact us for more information or to get involved.
