It’s been a VERY long time since we have trained for Winter Sports, and we are getting ready to start up again in January 2023 – Fridays and Sundays during January and February are our days to practice – Sunday for Alpine Skiing and Friday for Snowshoeing / Cross Country.
So, it’s time to register for 2023 Winter Sports Season (Alpine Skiing / Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing), 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 30, so that gives us about 3 weeks to gather all of the information.
- Alpine Practices will be starting on Sunday January 8, 2023 at Powder Ridge Mountain – please check our calendar of events for any updates of dates and times (www.OxfordSO.org).
- Snowshoe/Cross Country practices will be starting on Friday, January 6, 2023 at Oxford Center School – please check our calendar of events for any updates of dates and times (www.OxfordSO.org).
2023 Special Olympics CT Winter Games will be held March 4 & 5 2023.
Competition will be ONLY ONE DAY – We don’t know which day yet!
If you will not be available that weekend or are unable to make either of those days, then you should select “TRAINING ONLY”
THERE IS NO STAYING OVER THIS YEAR!
ONE DAY ONLY
Unified Partners and coaches please sign up also, so we are sure we have enough help and that you will be registered
** CERTIFIED COACHES: if you plan on helping at competition, please select “COMPETING” on the registration forms.
Practices will be held on Sunday evenings at Powder Ridge. (CHECK the OSO CALENDAR IN DECEMBER FOR UPDATES)
(Depending on how many slots/tickets we are allotted – If you are signing up for “Training Only” there is NO GUARANTEE that you will be allowed to train.)
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.
If you would like to train in multiple sports then you will need to fill out both forms if that is the case.
Please select the sport you will be training/competing in and click the proper link below:
1) Alpine -> https://bit.ly/2023OSOAlpine (This form NEEDS to be filled out by Tuesday November 30th – there will be NO LATE ENTRIES)
2) Snowshoe/X Country -> https://bit.ly/2023OSOWinterSports
Can’t hurt to say this again… 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. (We also need to make sure we have enough coaches for each sport.)
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
