2020 Alpine Sports Season

Today, 9,785 athletes from 71 programs around the world compete in alpine skiing. Nine Minnesota delegations currently offer the sport, the South Region Stars being one of them. There are events from novice to advanced levels. And, there is a glide event for lower ability level athletes to train and compete in basic alpine skiing skills. As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped in competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender.
 

PRACTICE

As soon as we have information about this year’s ski season, we will post it here.  Meanwhile, this would be a good time to make sure your Special Olympics’ Application is up-to-date.  Remember – the entire application must be renewed every three years.
