OSO Practice

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.


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.


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.

OSO Bowling Signup

Just 1 week left to signup for bowling.

We REALLY need to know how many we will be having, so Partners and Volunteers please sign up also.

We have to know how many lanes we will need, so if you don’t sign up, YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO BOWL the first night. It’s VERY important that we know how many bowlers and partners we will have.

If you have already signed up, you don’t need to do it again, but if you haven’t, please do so.

OSO Alpine Skiing

I know its still so warm outside, but Alpine Skiing is scheduled to start in just 3 weeks, and if you will be RENTING skis, then we need to get that started.

We will need height, weight and shoe size of anyone renting equipment this year. It will greatly speed up the process of getting in and out of Rentals if we can have all the information ahead of time and entered.

Please let Mo Doherty Blees know:
1) If you will be needing to rent equipment
2) If you are in need of a helmet (nobody skis without one, and if you do NOT have a helmet, you CANNOT go on the mountain – that includes Coaches)

Our registration has already been sent in, so if you previously registered for Alpine Skiing, then please let us know if you will be needing to rent equipment. (Rentals are free for any athletes already registered for Alpine Skiing)
