Northeast Arc Young Athletes Program

We wanted to share the latest update about the coronavirus (COVID-19) as it relates to Special Olympics programming here in Massachusetts, specifically our Young Athletes and Developmental Sports programs.

In light of the new recommendations shared by Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker’s Office and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that large public gatherings be cancelled or postponed, Special Olympics Massachusetts will take the following actions as of 3/19/20:

  • Cancelling or postponing all Special Olympics Massachusetts events and trainings through May 9, 2020. This cancellation includes Young Athletes and Developmental Sports programs.

To continue reading the rest of the memo you can do so here.

With the spring season program now canceled, we will be shifting our focus towards planning for the summer season at St. John’s Prep School. If you’d like to register for that program, please complete the registration form below.

While at home in these coming weeks, please check out our newly created Athlete Fitness and Young Athletes resource page on our website! This page is filled with great activity ideas, exercises, stretches and tips to help you stay active even when programs are cancelled.
