Indoor Winter Games
Presented by York County Convention & Visitors Bureau
Special Olympics Pennsylvania brought its inaugural Indoor Winter Games to York County from March 2-3, 2019. More than 650 athletes showcased the power of the human spirit and the joy of sports during two days of exciting competition.
The Indoor Winter Games featured floor hockey, figure skating, speed skating and bowling. It combined events that were previously held on a standalone basis, or as part of Special Olympics Pennsylvania’s annual winter or summer games.
The York Expo Center provided an integral hub. It hosted 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, took place at the York Ice Arena. While bowling has traditionally been part of the Summer Games, Special Olympics Pennsylvania moved 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.
