Sports Camp August 15-21, 2021:
At this point in time, we want to collect interest to see if we would have enough athlete/coach interest to attend Sports Camp this summer, if it's available. In early July we will hear from the Special Olympics International Office with their guidelines for summer and fall activities, so we will have to wait until then to know if camp will be able to take place. We are touching base with you now to determine your interest if we are able to attend camp.
At the present time, each county has been allotted 3 male and 3 female athletes (ratio is 3:1 this year). If there is an interest from our athletes, we can apply for more spots, if available and we have coaches who can attend. Another thing is that there will be only a handful of SOYA's this year. So, if it's a go and we have coaches that want to attend and help out, it would be appreciated.
Camp will have less than half the normal number of athletes in attendance. That’s about 84. Since there are fewer athletes only seven sports will be offered: athletics, basketball, bocce, flag football, soccer, swimming and volleyball.
Everyone who goes to camp, including coaches, staff, athletes, and all others must be vaccinated.
If camp is able to be held, for everyone’s safety we will stay on-site for all activities:
everyone will be vaccinated,
we will not leave camp for sports training or an off-site activity,
we will have temperatures at arrival and throughout the week,
masks only need to be worn if you prefer to wear one,
the bathrooms and showers will be sanitized every day,
hand sanitizer and suntan lotion will be provided throughout the facility and
no one will leave camp unless they have an emergency.
If you are not feeling well like always the camp medical team will be in place to take care of you and we have a cabin where you can stay while you are being taken care of.
Everyone’s safety is the main priority for Sports Camp. Are you interested in going to sports camp this year?
If you or anyone you know is interested and have any questions, please have them contact our Head of Delegation Meg Jones, firstname.lastname@example.org
