Athlete's Oath:

Let me win.

But if I cannot win,

let me be brave in the attempt.
About Us

The Barrie Community of Special Olympics Ontario currently offers training in 14 different sports throughout the year. The programs provide athletes the chance to increase skill and fitness levels through regular physical activity. Also a chance of competition at the local, regional, provincial, national, and even world game levels.

Our athletes enjoy the social interaction with their teammates, their peers, their coaches, and the volunteers, boosting their confidence in both practice
and competition.

Athletes of all ability levels are welcomed into the program and will receive
appropriate levels of training and coaching.

Winter registration occurs in September and Summer registration is in May. The registration fee is normally $40 but to encourage athlete and family involvement a discount can be applied. This $15.00 discount may be the result of involvement in fund raising opportunities, coaching, or community awareness campaigns. The discount is applied to your next seasonal fees.  Some sports (ie. golf) may have slightly larger fee to cover facility costs. Other sports have 
weekly fees (ie bowling)

Some sports are unable to provide the necessary equipment for participation. It is advised that you check with the head coach of that sport before attending
the first practice.

Also, some programs may have limitations on participants. Please verify with the coach of that sport if they can accept new registrations.

Head Coach information can be found under the Contact Us page.

We look forward to seeing you.
