Return to Sport

Last update: September 17, 2021 - added FAQs for those checking proof of vaccination, and updated attendance tracking forms

Following the Provincial Health Officer's guidance, Special Olympics BC now has a Communicable Disease Prevention Plan in place for our safe Return to Sport moving forward.

Read the plan


The communicable disease prevention approach currently includes:

  • Starting September 13, proof of COVID-19 vaccination for all participants and volunteers ages 12 and up; 
  • Sport training group sizes maximum 50;
  • Continued mask wearing off the fields of play;
  • An emphasis on staying home when you are sick;
  • Enhanced cleaning, hand washing, and ventilation;
  • And more.

As always, it is absolutely vital that all Special Olympics BC members take the protocols seriously and personally commit to following them. Thank you for continuing to take responsibility and follow the protocols, in order to keep yourself safe, keep each other safe, and keep Special Olympics programs safe for all. 

Special Olympics BC's Return to Sport planning process



In the coming weeks, Special Olympics BC will offer 2-3 virtual training sessions for athletes and for coaches on the communicable disease prevention plan. These sessions will be recorded so they can be shared with anyone who can’t attend live.
