Athletes and Unified Partners' medical participation forms are good for three years from the date of the health care provider's signature. If you need to renew, click on the "Click Here to Be An Athlete" button above. Volunteers' background clearances are good for five years and we know that many are expiring in 2021 and 2022. Visit the Special Olympics Pennsylvania background clearance steps here. The instructions will link you to the Volunteer portal. While completing your clearances please renew any expiring trainings: the protective behaviors and the concussion training are good for three years. And for certified coaches please check to see when your sport certification expires. If it is coming up, check the Special Olympics continuing education page here for renewal options.
