Fall Virtual Games Competition Week
Competition Week for the 2020 Special Olympics Oregon Fall Virtual Games presented by Providence Health & Services has arrived!
Nearly 400 participants have experienced the transformative power and sheer joy of athletic competition, good health and friendship, while being confident that their health and safety is carefully considered during this global crisis.
Tune into the Opening Ceremonies on Monday, November 2, 2020 at 1:00pm
In September, we launched the 2020 Special Olympics Fall Virtual Games with our presenting partner Providence Health & Services as part of our fully remote sports training and competition season. While early discussions with volunteer leaders around the state left us hopeful that people would engage, we did not know for sure what to expect.
The response has been very inspiring!
More than 60 coaches have worked with athletes to facilitate their success with virtual training and competition. Sports offered this season include athletics (track & field), fitness as sport, golf, soccer and Esports. Each sport saw at least 60 participants with athletics leading the way with 125 competitors.
2020 SOOR Fall Virtual Games Competition Week (November 2nd to the 9th) is now upon us!
It all starts with the Opening Ceremonies which will be shown on the SOOR YouTube channel and will include a live chat during the Monday, November 2, 2020 1pm premiere. This is also the week when athletes submit their scores.
We will all reconvene for Games Celebration Week on November 16-20 for daily awards, spirit day themes and other events including closing ceremonies and a victory dance on Friday the 20th.
