South Shore Young Athletes Program

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

As we are sure you can imagine, we have been monitoring the coronavirus situation across the state and at the strong recommendation of Special Olympics International, we have made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel all upcoming Special Olympics Massachusetts-hosted sports trainings and competitions that include Special Olympics athletes between now and April 5th. This includes all of our scheduled Young Athletes and Developmental Sports Programs. To continue reading the rest of the memo you can do so here.

We are continuing to work with our different program sites to monitor the situation. If you’d like to complete a registration form for the spring season, our hope is to move forward with the dates starting in April. However, if things change, we will continue to keep you informed through email as updates become available.

2020 Tentative Spring Season Dates:

Sunday Mornings from 9:30am – 10:30am

CANCELED: April 5th

Remaining Dates: April 19th, 26th, May 3rd, 10th, 17th
