2022 celebrates the 36th anniversary of Special Olympics in the Comox Valley. For the past 36 years Special Olympics BC - Comox Valley has been committed to enriching the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities by offering year round training and competitive opportunities through sport.

SOBC - Comox Valley currently offers 10 different sport programs including: athletics (track & field), aquatics (swimming), bocce, bowling, curling, floor hockey, nordic skiing, powerlifting and rhythmic gymnastics. In addition we offer a youth program for athletes 5 – 11 years of age called FUNdamentals where young athletes learn to develop their motor skills, play cooperatively with others and learn about fair play and sportsmanship.

With more than 5,200 Special Olympics athletes participating in 55 communities around the province, SOBC - Comox Valley is one of many locals delivering quality sports programming in British Columbia.

Athletes are coached and mentored by trained volunteers and coaches within the community and benefit from the opportunity to compete alongside their peers at local, regional, provincial, national and international competitions. Special Olympics has a very unique approach to divisioning that ensures all athletes, regardless of their ability, compete against other athletes of a similar ability level and receive the same opportunities for advancement within the sports they compete in.

Through sport and non-sport initiatives, such as our Healthy Athletes Program, Special Olympics athletes learn about nutrition, develop social skills, build friendships and experience the joy of reaching their potential through positive sport experiences.
