Indoor Winter Games
Presented by York County Convention & Visitors Bureau
Special Olympics Pennsylvania will bring its inaugural Indoor Winter Games to York County from March 2-3, 2019, with hundreds of athletes expected to showcase the power of the human spirit and the joy of sports during two days of exciting competition.
The Indoor Winter Games will feature floor hockey, figure skating, speed skating and bowling. It combines events that were previously held on a standalone basis, or as part of Special Olympics Pennsylvania’s annual winter or summer games.
About 950 athletes, coaches and staff/officials from across Pennsylvania are expected to participate, with competitors ranging from 8 to more than 80 years old.
The York Expo Center will provide an integral hub. It will host the Opening Ceremony, a dinner and a dance for the athletes, as well as the floor hockey competition.
Figure skating and speed skating events, previously part of the Special Olympics’ Winter Games, will take place at the York Ice Arena. While bowling has traditionally been part of the Summer Games, Special Olympics Pennsylvania will move it under the banner of the Indoor Winter Games to better align it with the training season. The bowling competition will take place at Colony Lanes North and Laser Alleys.
