2021 State Winter Games Update


Following our recent decision to suspend all in-person competition through December 31st, after meeting with Sugarloaf Event Staff and learning of their restrictions driven by COVID-19 state protocols (i.e. use common gathering areas, housing, venue space, etc) and keeping the health and safety of everyone involved our first priority, we have come to this difficult decision.

We understand that this announcement will bring incredible disappointment to everyone that had planned to attend. However, we continue to be committed to providing all athletes & coaches (teams) an opportunity to continue to practice, train, and prepare for when in-person competitions resume. And we will do this by launching our 2021 Winter Sports Challenge!

2021 Winter Training Challenge

In January 2021, Special Olympics Maine will be begin a Winter Sports Training Challenge that will allow athletes in Alpine Ski, Dual Ski, Cross Country Ski, Snowshoe and Speed Skating to track # of runs, miles, times, and workouts completed. This 2021 Winter Training Program will be offered through February. More information will be distributed in December 2020.

the cause endures,
the hope still lives,
and the dream shall never die”
