Northwest Region

In 2023, Special Olympics PA (SOPA) established the Northwest Region, to serve more than 1,000 athletes in Clarion, Crawford, Erie, Forest, Mercer, Venango and Warren counties. This regional approach is designed to provide sustainability to the organization, engage more athletes and provide enhanced, quality experiences to athletes in our region.
