RETURN TO PROGRAM PLAN

Sport and physical activity play a vital role in the physical, psychological, and emotional well-being of participants in Special Olympics.  The health and safety of all our participants and the greater community remain our number one priority, as we all work together through a slow and steady phased return to in-person programs.

SONL in consultation with Special Olympics Canada (SOC), Sport NL, Provincial Sport Organizations (PSO's) and Health and Community Services NL (Public Health) have developed the SONL Return to Program Plan (RTP).

PROCESS

Step 1: Club executive decide to return to in-person program

step 2: club executive and volunteers review Full SONL Return to Program PLAN

Step 3: Club executive submit online rtp application PER PROGRAM - await SONL approval

*Step 4: sonl staff virtually meets with club executive and volunteers for initial in-person program only

step 5: sonl grants final approval, club begins in-person program

*This process must be completed by Club Executive, in full, for each program. i.e., if a club would like to return to both Bocce and Athletics, all steps outlined are to be completed and approved by SONL for Bocce and again for Athletics.

RETURN TO PROGRAM (RTP) APPLICATION *CURRENTLY UNDER REVIEW

ONLY Applications COMPLETED BY CLUB EXECUTIVE MEMBERS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
