Dear Athletes, Volunteers, and SOO Greater Ottawa Community Members

Thank you for your patience over the last 10 days as we have continued to work closely with Special Olympics Ontario to review the best path forward for Summer Program Registration. We understand the current situation is impacting each of you in different ways, and not knowing only adds to stress and anxiety. 

On March 24th, Special Olympics Ontario extended the suspension of all programming, competitions, fundraising, and related activities until April 30th. In addition, they also announced the postponement of the 2020 Provincial Spring Games and the 2020 Provincial School Championships. 

In light of these decisions, SOO Greater Ottawa council has decided to postpone summer registration. Please note this decision was not taken lightly and we understand how excited we all are to get back to the programming that means so much to all of us. As soon as start dates for summer programming are confirmed, we'll kick start the registration process, and upload the summer 2020 registration form and details to our website and social media.

Hang in there and let us know if we can support you in any way. Stay safe and stay healthy. We're in this together.
