Occurring annually or semi-annually, these alternate between spring/summer or winter competitions, depending upon the chapter. These games also serve as qualifiers for national games.
Local or Regional Competitions
Occurring throughout the year, these are qualifiers for provincials. All athletes can take part in local competitions.
These national competitions occur every two years, alternating between summer and winter.
Our largest and definitely one of our most recognized events, the Special Olympics movement stages what is its largest sporting, cultural and educational event every two years, alternating between summer and winter.
Being a Special Olympics Regina athlete is about enjoying sport and choosing to challenge oneself.
We see that one of its most important benefits of sports is its power to connect individuals; to create teammates and forge friendships; to bring forth a new community of interest and common endeavour.
Special Olympics athletes are given the opportunity to compete at some level. They can stay active and build relationships by enrolling in year-round programs that run weekly in the community. Or they can choose to take it to a higher level by earning the opportunity to compete in national or international games. The sky is the limit and is dependent on the athletes commitment.
Have fun challenging yourself!
