As the calendar creeps towards the New Year we find ourselves staring in the face of yet another Special Olympics Maine State Winter Games! This year’s State Winter Games will be held on January 27th-29th, 2019 at Sugarloaf Mountain. This email will be the ONLY notice you will receive about your first steps towards registering your Delegation to be a part of this year’s Games.”
SOME will once again be decreasing the quota of snowshoe athletes, while increasing the quota in other winter sports. Due to the limited size of the snowshoe venue and competition time constraints, we are encouraging teams to limit their number of snowshoe athletes, and encourage you to train and move those athletes who are capable, into Alpine, Cross Country Skiing or Speed Skating competitions. We’ll continue to offer Winter Coaches Training Schools, acquire equipment & secure training venues to help with this transition.
Again this year – To increase athlete participation we will accept all Area Delegation Winter Games Registrations with the following exceptions:
  • Due to the 7 year Area Rotation, Androscoggin & Franklin County Delegations will not be provided housing. Delegations in these areas can register as “Day Only” participants commuting in each day or find alternative housing. If housing is needed, it is suggested to book through rental companies like Home AwayAir Bnb or surrounding town hotels. Please do not contact Sugarloaf Mountain Co. directly!
  • Androscoggin & Franklin County Delegations cannot register any athlete in Snowshoe events unless participating in the 200m & 400m
SOME will ONLY send 2019 Winter Games registration information to the delegations that have been awarded Quotas so, please don’t hesitate – complete the form, today!
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. For more information contact Lauren Lessard , or 879-0489
