Skagit Special Olympics Revival!!!
Local volunteers are stepping up to re-establish our active community Special Olympics programs. We are partnering with Skagit Valley Family YMCA to offer a Swim Program and a Soccer Program during the months of May and June.
Athletes will be offered the opportunity to swim in the new pool during an eight-week instructional session at the YMCA facility located at 1901 Hoag Road in Mount Vernon. Special Olympic Swim sessions will be held Thursdays from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. starting May 5th.
Athletes also have the opportunity to participate in Special Olympics Soccer at the Sports Center, an indoor facility located in Bakerview Park in Mount Vernon. Practices will be offered on Fridays from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. starting May 6.
***Soccer practice cancelled Friday, May 27th for Memorial Day weekend***
We will follow the current recommended local Health and Safety protocols at our practice sessions.
Every athlete must complete and submit a new Registration Medical form in order to participate in Special Olympics. This form can be found and downloaded from either of these two sites:
Important: After a physician completes and signs the Medical portion of this form…Please make a copy for your records and mail the original to:
