It’s registration season!

Locals have sent out information about registration for the 2021-22 sport year.

All Special Olympics BC athletes and volunteers are asked to complete the 2021-22 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.


During Regular programming:

Special Olympics BC – Penticton is a long-standing Local in the Okanagan region, having provided great programs in our community for many years. We currently offer 5-pin and 10-pin bowling, bocce, swimming, golf, powerlifting, rhythmic gymnastics, and snowshoeing.

SOBC – Penticton is looking to expand the sport programs we offer athletes in their community, so would welcome new volunteers who are interested. We are also actively looking for a Local Coordinator to provide leadership in the Local Committee. If you would like more information on our volunteer opportunities, please contact us!
