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 – Grand Forks provides eight sport programs to athletes in Grand Forks and the surrounding areas.

We offer 5-pin bowling, swimming, softball, floor hockey, bocce, Club Fit, alpine skiing, and snowshoeing. New athletes are always welcome and please take a minute to ‘Like’ our Facebook page to stay updated on programs and events in the community.

SOBC – Grand Forks is actively recruiting volunteers to fill roles on our Local Committee as well as support our sport programs.
