Young Athletes Festival

The Fall Fest Athlete Involvement Committee and SOPA are excited to announce that there will be a virtual Young Athletes Festival on Sunday, November 7th at 10:00 AM. This Festival will have many activities to match the overall Fall Fest theme of colors!

The Young Athletes Festival is open to all children ages 2-7 with and without intellectual disabilities and their families! The purpose of this festival is for young children to virtually play with each other in hopes of learning about what SOPA has to offer when they become eligible to compete and make lifelong friends.

All Young Athletes and their families may register themselves right here. Please contact Jordan Schubert at if you have any additional questions about this event or Young Athletes in general.
