Effective Friday March 13th, Special Olympics Edmonton, under direction of Special Olympics Alberta, will be suspending all sport training, competition and other activities involving our athletes until April 14, at which time the situation will be re-evaluated. Although the risk of infection in Alberta is still low, individuals with intellectual disabilities have a heightened risk of contracting COVID-19 and the health of our athletes is of utmost importance.
We hope that we will be able to resume programs after April 14, but there is a possibility that we will need to extend the suspension. We will continue to monitor the situation in tandem with Special Olympics Alberta and work with our key partners and local health authorities to determine when it would be safe to resume programs, so we can ensure the safety of our members. Protection of our athletes, volunteers, staff and families is our number one priority.
More information will be sent to all athletes and volunteers by email.
Due to the timing of this cancellation, sports will be affected differently. See below for your sport details:
