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 equestrian, fitness, golf and tennis activities
- PRACTICE! You can practice starting July 6 for as many events as you want. Keep track of your scores as you go. You have until Monday, July 27 to practice and submit your results. (Special Olympics Minnesota will host Zoom calls with your delegation on practice ideas and registration questions, we’ll reach out to delegations in July)
- SUBMIT YOUR RESULTS! Practice all your events first and keep track of your scores as you go. Fill out this 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, July 15. All qualifying scores from practice are due by Monday, July 27.
Note: In order to follow social distancing requirements, you should practice and compete in these activities on your own at home; however, if a golf course, tennis court or stable is open and you choose to go there, you can do so as long as you follow state and federal social distancing guidelines. No team practices, individual training sessions with coaches or in person team events are allowed at this time. 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 & Coaches: Do you have someone who doesn’t have access to internet but would still like to be a part of Virtual Summer Sports Classic? 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 needed internet or computer access.
