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 - await SONL approval

Step 4: sonl staff will virtually meet with club executive and volunteers

step 5: sonl to grant final approval, then club may begin 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 five steps outlined are to be completed and approved by SONL for Bocce and again for Athletics.

RETURN TO PROGRAM (RTP) APPLICATION

ONLY Applications COMPLETED BY CLUB EXECUTIVE MEMBERS WILL BE ACCEPTED.
Complete application in full, scroll to bottom and click "Next" as needed.
Once THE application IS completed, SONL automatically receives an email indicating the application has been SUBMITTED and will contact THE club to work through next steps as listed above.
