Special Announcement Regarding coronavirus (COVID-19)!
Special Olympics Minnesota has cancelled basketball and swimming this season.  There will be no Summer Games in June. 

We've been asked to suspend Golf, Softball, and Bocce registration for now.  We are still hoping to be able to participate in these sports yet this year.
SOMN will be discussing this over the next couple of weeks.

Special Olympics will be offering a Virtual Summer Sports Season where athletes, coaches, and teams can participate virtually and individually so that athletes can continue to stay active.  
Ways to stay at home and stay engaged for athletes are being offered online.  Go to SOMN.org - Look for the red banner: click on SOMN@Home (Ideas to stay engaged and active while remaining at home). https://specialolympicsminnesota.org/get-involved/somn-at-home/

Health & Wellness Resources are available online as well.  These are available on the SOMN@Home tab, under Health and Wellness (Fit5, School of Strength, Strong Minds, SoFit, and Walk and Roll).
 https://specialolympicsminnesota.org/get-involved/somn-at-home/

 

The  situation is still fluid and may be extended based on new developments. We will be monitoring the situation closely.  We will post here and email additional changes as SOMN provides more information. 
SOMN will continue to post updates at
somn.org/covid19.
