BREAKING NEWS! The 2021 Special Olympics Maine State Summer Games are going VIRTUAL, June 10th & 11th. Get ready for an exciting, fun filled 2 days complete with all the things you would expect from State Summer Games; great competition, special events in Olympic Village, health and fitness opportunities, opening/closing ceremonies, and of course, the victory dance!
We are slowly but surely moving beyond this pandemic, but we will still not be able to hold an “in-person” event for 3,000 people by June. So, stay tuned for much more information to come soon!
Don’t forget, our month-long Virtual Swim Season kicked off on April 1st! Look for weekly swim activities with the Michael Phelps Foundation, other swim clubs and special friends. And gear up now for virtual swim competition being offered to both athletes and unified partners. Click here for more info.
As we continue with virtual training and competition, plans do call for our advancement from Phase 1, to Phase 2, as soon as May 1st (if conditions continue to improve as they have over the past several weeks). This would allow groups of 50 or less, to gather for Special Olympics Maine activities offering many more opportunities because we all want want to get back on the field, the court, and the track. But regardless of where we are now, there is never a reason to stop training and trying to achieve your best! And with a move to phase 2, we can get entire teams back together at the local level. So if you haven’t already started, now is the time to get back in the game! Contact your local Special Olympics Maine program HOD or Head Coach to learn more.
