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?

We encourage you to sign up for all the sports you usually would. However, please know that filling out these forms does not automatically mean you’ll participate in everything you signed up for. Your Local will provide you with more information once they receive your registration.
