Return to Activities Final

As our state continues to take steps to reopen safely, Special Olympics Pennsylvania (SOPA) has developed a Return to Activities plan.  The most important priority reflected throughout this plan is the health and safety of all of our participants: athletes, Unified partners, coaches, volunteers, family members, caregivers and staff.  

Our plan aligns with guidance from the State of Pennsylvania, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Special Olympics International (SOI).  We thank everyone who helped develop this plan.  We utilized results from our recent survey completed by more than 2,100 SOPA stakeholders, conversations with the Regional Input Council (athlete leaders) and the Sports Advisory Committee (athletes and volunteers), and feedback from our Board’s Program Committee.  As the virus situation changes and we learn more or receive new guidance, we fully expect our plan to evolve as well in response to those changes. Following is our Return to Activities plan and resources to help you better understand what to expect.
