Attention Athletes and Volunteers!

All athletes and volunteers must show proof of double vaccination or of medical exemption to their coaches.   As we move back to in-person sports, please check with your coach if your sport has been approved to begin.  Please check here for all Special Olympics Ontario's COVID-19 policies.

We begin by acknowledging that we are all on land that has been inhabited by Indigenous people for thousands of years.  We acknowledge that the Special Olympics Ontario Peterborough community is located on/in the traditional territory of the Mississauga Anishnaabeg.  This territory is covered by Treaty 20.  Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work, live, and play on this land.

About Us

Special Olympics Ontario is a volunteer driven organization with some 18,000 athletes and 8,000 volunteers registered across the province. Athletes range in age from 8 - 80 and have the opportunity to train in 18 core sports.

The Peterborough District Community of Special Olympics Ontario has over 150 registered athletes and more than 50 dedicated volunteers. Every facet of our community is dedicated to enriching the lives of people with intellectual disabilities.

Our sports teams are always looking for energetic, compassionate individuals who are interested in getting involved. Volunteering for Special Olympics not only feels great, but it's easy to do. The time requirements are not cumbersome, often only requiring two to three hours per week, over the season of the sport you get involved in. If you have some spare time, and want to help make a difference, please, use the link above to register as a volunteer, or use the Contact Us link to ask questions.
