Virtual Summer Games
We are excited to announce the 2020 Virtual Summer Games (VSG)! This event will offer the opportunity for all of us to come together, capture the spirit of our athletes and volunteers, and share a unique experience.
This event is open to every registered athlete and is a safe way for them to compete against their friends and peers from across the state. After our athletes have trained and competed from home, we will all come together virtually to celebrate their success through a series of virtual events taking place on Facebook, YouTube, Zoom, and our website from June 12 – 14, 2020. #VirtualSummerGames #WeAreSOPA
COMPETE FROM HOME
This competition is a safe way for athletes, young athletes/partners, Unified partners and coaches to keep the spirit of Special Olympics Pennsylvania alive by competing against each other from home! Please note that because of the ongoing pandemic, we have extended indefinitely the suspension of all in-person Special Olympics Pennsylvania events and activities, regardless of size.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
- CHOOSE YOUR CHALLENGES! Check out all of the offered challenges and train at home. There are challenges in each of the 8 Summer Games sports that we typically offer: Athletics, Basketball, Equestrian, Golf, Gymnastics, Softball, Swimming & Tennis!
- TRAIN FOR YOUR CHALLENGES! You can train and submit your scores for up to three (3) events. Keep track of your scores as you go. The deadline has been extended, so you now have until Sunday, June 7, 2020 to train and submit your results.
- SUBMIT YOUR RESULTS! Train for all of your events first and keep track of your scores as you go. Fill out this form once you are done training, and submit your best event scores. You can also submit a video of yourself practicing or a recording of an encouraging message to share by May 31st! All qualifying scores are due by Sunday, June 7, 2020. ALL athletes who submit scores will receive an exclusive VSG t-shirt!
