**** BRING WATER – YOU WILL NEED IT ****

This will be geared towards athletes, but will still be an intense workout to music.

2018 Spring/Summer sports signup

If you will be participating in spring/summer training or competition, you will need to fill out the online signup sheet below.

It is EXTREMELY important that you sign up if you plan on competing, since our registration is due on April 18 and our first week of swim practice is after that date.

http://bit.ly/2018OSOSummerSports

It is very important to register, so that we know how many coaches/volunteers we will need.

The last day to register for competition will be Friday April 6, 2018, so please fill this form out as soon as you get it. You should receive an email confirmation after you submit the form.

Only those that sign up for COMPETITION will be registered for the summer games.

It costs Oxford Special Olympics money for every athlete and partner that is registered for competition, so if you register for COMPETITION and don’t show, or change your mind, then we will be out that money, which isn’t fair to anyone.

Sports:

Cycling / Swimming / Track & Field

Oxford Special Olympics will be training in three sports this Spring – Cycling, Track and Field, and Swimming – both Developmental and Advanced. Competition will be at the Special Olympics Connecticut Summer Games on June 8-10, 2018.

You may train in ALL of the sports, but must select only 1 for competition, since the competition will be held simultaneously on the same weekend. If you sign up for competition, then you are expected to attend all of the practices for that sport. If you have too many unexcused absences, then you will be scratched from competition.

All of the pertinent information is included on the form, so please READ IT CAREFULLY.

Special Olympics CT will be offering a cycling coaches training class next week:

Quinnipiac University – North Haven Campus 370 Bassett Rd, North Haven, CT 06473

Cycling Coaches Training following the Summer Games Meeting from 12- 2:30 PM. Please be prepared to bring your bicycle and helmet! Click the link to register by Wednesday, March 14th.

Please let us know if you are planning on registering for this class.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Larry.


2018 Winter Sports Registration

Hello All,It may seem a little early for winter sports registration, but we have to let Special Olympics CT know how many we will have training and competing.

Our Alpine sports registration is due to the State office by November 28, so that gives us about 18 days to gather all of the information.

Practices will be starting in January – please check our calendar of events for dates and times. (Will be updated in December)

Unified Partners and coaches please sign up also, so we are sure we have enough help and that you will be registered

Please select the sport you will be training/competing in from the links below:

1) Alpine -> http://bit.ly/2018AlpineRegistration (This form NEEDS to be filled out by November 27th – no late entries, please)

2) Snowshoe/X Country -> http://bit.ly/2018OSOWinterSports

Coaches: if you plan on helping at competition, please select “COMPETING” on the registration forms.

You may train in multiple sports, but since the competition is on the same weekend, you will have to choose ONLY 1 sport to compete in.

Depending on the number of Slots/Lift Tickets we are allotted, there is no guarantee that you will be allowed to “TRAIN ONLY” in Alpine.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
