Return to Activities

Updated on July 7, 2021; 4:00 p.m.

Special Olympics Washington is excited to return to limited in-person activities for the summer season! To ensure the safety of all participants, we are adopting a 3-level approach to our return to activities. For the summer season — July 19 through September 6  — we will be operating at Level 1.

Sports offered during summer season are athletics (individual rolling, running and walking events), bocce (singles only), cycling, golf, tennis (singles only) and fitness activities (e.g., Fitness Heptathlon, walking clubs, etc.). Please note: we will not be hosting any in-person regional or state games this summer season.

On this page you’ll find the protocol and accompanying materials for guidance on our return to activities. Our return to activities is subject to change based on developments with the COVID-19 crisis and guidance from state and local health authorities.

Note: We are aware of the May 13 CDC announcement regarding updated safety protocols for individuals who are vaccinated. Special Olympics is working with health experts to determine what is safest for our athletes and we will have more information to share by mid- to late-June.

For more information, please contact rta@sowa.org, or call our Athlete Hotline at (206) 681-9362.
