Effective Tuesday April 14, 2020, Special Olympics Edmonton, under direction of Special Olympics Alberta, will be suspending all sport training, competition and other activities involving our athletes until at least June 30, 2020 at which time the situation will be re-evaluated. We need to be extremely diligent as individuals with intellectual disabilities have a heightened risk of contracting COVID-19 and the health of our athletes is of utmost importance.
UPDATED: Special Olympics Alberta and by extension Special Olympics Edmonton will be cancelling all weekly sport programs for the remainder of the program year. 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 in person gatherings and events, 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.
