To all Coaches, Athletes and Volunteers,

 Peterborough Special Olympics is in the process of returning to sport. There are many hours ahead for Coaches and Athletes to prepare for our return. Special Olympics Ontario has given us direction on the rules and guidelines we must follow, and there are many.                   As of now, “NO”  Special Olympics Sport or Special Olympics Activities are permitted to begin until we have our procedures in place for the safety of our Athletes, Coaches, Caregivers, Spectators, Families and our Community.                                          In the upcoming weeks, we will be putting together a plan, and all our athletes will be notified in a timely matter. Keep an eye out on our websites and the specific sport pages for updates. With patience and teamwork, we can get through these trying times and get back to what we all love and enjoy SPORTS!!!!!

Stay safe everyone,


Your Council,

Special Olympics Peterborough

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.
