Covid-19 Suspends Skagit Special Olympics
Our local Special Olympics Program has been suspended since March of 2020. As a result of the fifth wave of the Covid pandemic, local school districts are not currently renting facilities to outside users.
Special Olympics USA and Special Olympics Washington must approve any plans to return to activity.
Our local coaches are committed to protect the health and welfare of our athletes and volunteers. We are aware that many of our athletes are medically fragile, have compromised immune systems and respiratory challenges.
We encourage all athletes and volunteers to get the Covid-19 vaccine.
We will inform you once we have a local plan to resume our program. This will include securing facilities, recruiting volunteers and establishing new health-related protocols.
In preparation of resuming the Skagit Special Olympics Program, we ask all athletes to update their Athlete Registration Form which includes a new medical form. This needs to be completed by any new and most re-registering athletes. Athlete medicals are only valid for three years.
Please mail these completed documents to:
