Sports

The Arnprior Community of Special Olympics Ontario offers training in a variety of sports throughout the year. The programs are designed to provide athletes with the increased skill and fitness level which result from regular physical activity which leads to competition at levels including local, regional, provincial, national, and even world games. All of our athletes benefit from the social interaction with their teammates and many find that their self-confidence is improved as a result of their achievements both in practice and in competition.

For more information about any sports program, please contact the coach of the program. 

Many of our programs are structured to provide two levels of training. Athletes of all ability levels are welcomed into the programs to receive the appropriate level of training and coaching. Please note that athletes who require one-on-one support must be accompanied by a member of their support network. Coaching involves working with small groups of athletes with a 1:4 ratio.(coach:athlete).

Some important notes:

  • Please note that not all sports provide the equipment necessary to participate. Please confirm with the Head Coach of the program if personal equipment is required before attending the first practice.
  • Additionally, some programs may have a limit on the number of participants, and therefore unable to accept all registrations, the Head Coach will advise.
  • Athletes or caregivers should contact the coach of the program to verify that there is space in the program.
  • The Arnprior SOO Club is 100% funded by the successful fund raising events organized and run by the Club Volunteers.   As a result of the fundraising, there is no cost to the Athletes to participate in the Arnprior sports programs, however some events and competitions may require specific costs to the Athletes to participate.
