Special Olympics Info

What programs are available for Special Olympic Athletes?

For more than 30 years, Special Olympics BC has improved the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities and, in turn, the lives of everyone they’ve touched.
In 1968, Eunice Kennedy Shriver knew in her heart that giving people with disabilities the chance to participate in sport could transform their feelings about themselves—building confidence, restoring pride and opening a door to a more hopeful future.
Today, Special Olympics BC is proud to offer year-round programs in 18 sports that further the vision of Eunice Kennedy Shriver by increasing the health, self-esteem and skills of every athlete who steps up to the plate in Special Olympics programs.

Smithers Ski and Snowboard Club are proud to be a part of this program and we offer a organized program from September to April for the SOBC athletes. 

The athletes are training together with all other club athletes as one TEAM, where they'll build a bond of camraderie that will last a lifetime.
The main focus of the on-snow training is freeskiing, GS, SL gate training as well as intro to SkiCross. The Athletes are encouraged to partake in the local events that the club puts on, as well as traveling to Provincial events.
Our coaches are certified with Special Olympics BC and so are all of our volunteers.

Regardless of what SOBC program you choose, you need to download and fill out SOBC forms for REGISTRATION and MEDICAL and mail them to address below.
