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 Minnesota alive by competing against each other from home! Here’s how it works:
- CHOOSE YOUR ACTIVITIES! Check out all the bocce, softball, fitness and walk/run activities.
- PRACTICE! You can practice starting August 10 for as many events as you want. Keep track of your scores as you go. You have until Monday, August 31 to practice and submit your results.
- SUBMIT YOUR RESULTS! Practice all your events first and keep track of your scores as you go. Fill out the results form once you’re done practicing all your events. Submit your best scores for any or all events. You can also submit a video of yourself practicing, or a recording of an encouraging message to share! The results form will be available for submitting results on Wednesday, August 19. All qualifying scores from practice are due by Monday, August 31.
Note (updated July 8, 2020): Special Olympics Minnesota is developing Return to Play Guidelines so that we can resume in-person practices in a safe way. As soon as Return to Play Guidelines are announced, we’ll update teams on what they mean for practices during the Fall Games season, but at this time no team practices, individual training sessions with coaches or in-person team events are allowed. Virtual practice sessions with your team through social media, texts or emails are allowed and encouraged! Coaches can still help virtually with explaining practice activities, collecting and submitting scores, and cheering you on.
If you need help or don’t have access to a computer, ask your parent, staff person or coach to help.
Athletes and coaches: Do you know someone who doesn’t have access to internet but would still like to be a part of Virtual Fall Games? If you’re willing and able to do so safely, please get a printable version of the program to your athletes so they can participate and record their results without needing internet or computer access.
