As Ontario continues to emerge from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, Special Olympics Ontario (SOO) is excited to see our athletes back at practice and attending competition. The impact of the pandemic continues to affect sport programs, and SOO is no different.
Special Olympics Canada is committed to hosting the 2024 National Winter Games in Calgary, Alberta. SOO is dedicated to supporting athletes who strive to represent Ontario on that National stage. However, SOO is not currently in a position to host and execute a large scale Provincial Winter Games in 2023, as previously scheduled. To ensure our athletes have the opportunity to qualify for the 2024 National Winter Games, SOO will be conducting a series of sport-specific Provincial Championships during the 2022-23 winter sport season.
The scale and design of these championships will be based off the unique landscape of each sport.
