2020 SUMMER GAMES CANCELLED

Please see the letter below

TO OUR ATHLETES

We know how disappointing this news is, and we are sad, too.  And, we’ve had to cancel our annual Outback Fundraiser, too.  BUT, check out the info about the Virtual Summer Games below!

Keep Safe — Your Coaches

GREAT NEWS!  The Virtual Summer Games are here! Train and compete from home and come together virtually to celebrate your accomplishments as SOMN broadcasts your results on Wednesday, May 27, on Facebook, YouTube and the SOMN website.

Meet the Team

We are a team of Special Olympics Minnesota, offering those with intellectual disabilities sports training and competition opportunities.  Our athletes discover new strengths, skills and success. We know no boundaries.

Check Us Out

Through practice and competitions, our athletes achieve joy and acceptance. We do so by upholding our number one rule – HAVE FUN!  And we have plenty of opportunities to do so – fall, winter, spring and summer.

Get Going!

We practice in northern Dakota County (but welcome all).  Pick your sports and get going:  We offer team and individual sports:  Alpine Skiing, Basketball, Bocce, Bowling, Flag Football, Floor Hockey, Softball, Swimming, and Track and Field.

Outstanding!

Athlete Maya Rivera had an amazing experience last summer, when she represented the US at the World Games in Abu Dhabi.  Maya was among the athletes who competed in bocce, and she returned to the States with medals, ribbons, and stories. We’re so proud of you Maya. You were brave, you had courage, and we’re so lucky to call you our Star.

And congrats, too, to the Stars who represented Minneosta at the USA games in 2018: Sarah Haugen (swimming); Charlie Rea (bocce) and Russell Greenhalge (bowling).
