A special thank you is extended to all of the athletes, coaches, volunteers, and members of law enforcement who helped make our 40th Annual Winter Games a success despite the intense wintry weather.

Athletes competed from January 29-31, 2017. #PAWinterGames
Continuing with tradition, hundreds of athletes, coaches, families, and friends representing all corners of Pennsylvania participated in SOPA’s third-largest state-wide event, the Winter Games. During the course of the event, more than 350 athletes and 130 coaches participated in three days of exciting winter sports – competing in alpine and cross-country skiing, speed skating, snowshoeing and individual skills events. Weeks of hard work and dedication in training was rewarded as athletes were cheered on and supported during competition by more than 1,200 enthusiastic volunteers. This event required volunteers from around the state to serve as officials, athlete escorts, award presenters, and in various other ways. Spectators were welcome to visit any of the competition venues and cheer on the athletes.
