Getting Started

We have provided a framework of principles for how Special Olympics Ontario will Return to Program. With those principles as our guide, we have created a step by step process that will have you on track to re-starting your programs.

The recommendations and guidelines found within this website are focused on providing a phased return to program in an attempt to minimize exposure of COVID-19 for all stakeholders involved.

It is strongly recommended that as part of a phased return to programs, athletes consult a healthcare provider and seek medical advice before returning to program activities and sports training.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our community, especially athletes, will always be at the center of everything we do.

At all times these guidelines are subject to all government and public health authorities’ laws, regulations and directions. They do not supersede directives from your Provincial Health Authorities or government but are meant to serve as an additional resource.
