Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to fill out these forms this year?

Yes, all new and returning Special Olympics BC athletes and volunteers must register annually in order to participate in SOBC programs.

What should I sign up for?

Please sign up for all the sports that interest you. However, please know that filling out these forms does not automatically mean you’ll participate in everything you signed up for.

Once your community received your registration, your Local will give you more information. 

What forms are to be required for athletes and coaches to register for the current season? 

New and returning athletes and coaches must complete a Registration and Medical Form and accept the Terms and Conditions for Participation. Both of these forms must be completed annually.
