We’re excited about the 2016 season of summer-sport Regional Qualifiers, where SOBC athletes throughout the province will give their all in competing to qualify for the 2017 Special Olympics BC Summer Games.
In the 2017 Provincial Games, athletes will compete for the opportunity to advance to the 2018 Special Olympics Canada Summer Games, the qualifier for the 2019 Special Olympics World Summer Games.
For SOBC athletes, it all starts right here with the Regional Qualifiers. A significant number of Locals around the province will host these exciting competitions, and 2016 will see many firsts. The first Basketball Regional Qualifiers to be held on the Island and in the North will be hosted by SOBC – Campbell River and SOBC – Prince George, respectively, and Kelowna and Fort St. John will be hosting their first-ever rhythmic gymnastics qualifiers. Big thanks to all the volunteers and supporters who make these important opportunities possible, and best of luck to all competitors!
