COVID-19 UPDATE: RETURN TO SPORT
Due to the updated Public Health Orders for sport delivery announced on April 28th we have made the decision to lift our province-wide in-person program suspension. We will now move all of our sports into our stage 2 status – meaning physically distanced individual skills and fitness training programs are allowed. We are pleased to make this change and along with our community leaders will strive to provide safe and meaningful sports programming once again.
We need your support like never before; Coaches and Volunteers are needed now more than ever!!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Rhonda 306-529-4337 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Welcome to Special Olympics Regina!
Special Olympics Regina is part of a global movement to create a new world of inclusion and community through sport.
The powerful social benefits of sport are of particular importance to people with an intellectual disability because one of the first effects of their disability is social isolation. For many Special Olympics athletes, training sessions become the source and the nourishment of their deepest friendships.
Our vision is to continue to improve and expand the quality, opportunity, and accessibility of sport to individuals with an intellectual disability. Along with this, we will strive to improve upon both the awareness and support of the community in regards to Special Olympics Canada and those involved with us.
We provide all athletes with choices in their opportunity to train and to compete;
Be accessible and open to all athletes with an intellectual disability, regardless of their ability.
Be recognized as an integral and valued part of the sport delivery system by working in partnership with sport organizations.
We continually strive to design and provide quality programs and services for our members and supporters, which includes; top quality training for athletes and coaches and a high level of support for athletes in training and competition including a strong focus on their personal health, well-being, and safety.
It is important to us that we promote a high level of community awareness so that people know who we are, what we provide, and how to access opportunities.
Have a strong committed group of volunteers;
Provide opportunities for all athletes in our organization to have input into and access decision-making processes.
Ensure that people know where to voice their concerns and that they have an opportunity to be heard.
Be accountable to our members and partners, and decision-making processes will be transparent, clear, fair and understanding;
Constantly challenge ourselves to enrich the lives of Canadians with an intellectual disability through sport.
Special Olympics offers athletes an opportunity to qualify for and participate in Provincial, National, and World Games in both Winter and Summer events. These Games are offered on 4-year cycle and this section includes information on upcoming Games and opportunities for participation as an athlete, coach, or volunteer
