SPECIAL OLYMPICS VANDERBURGH COUNTY

July 7, 2020 Hello to all Vanderburgh County Athletes: I hope all of you are staying well and not too bored from no Special Olympics. I know I sure miss all of you. Everyone has been calling and asking when are we going back to sports? When are we going to start practicing? That is a question I keep asking too. After talking and having meetings with the State Office, our Management Team, and parents, a decision has been made to postpone the return to sports activities at this time. This decision was not an easy one to make. Our most valuable asset to Special Olympics is you, the athlete. We do not want to jeopardize you or any of your fellow athletes with the possibility of being exposed to or getting the Corona Virus. And at this time, we do not feel that we can make it safe enough for the athletes to gather for a practice. You ask, what sports are we talking about postponing? This would include Corn Toss, Bowling in the fall, and Softball. The Fitness Club (Walking Club) will try and get back to walking as soon as we can. As time goes along and as we monitor and receive guidelines from the State Office, sports will come back. This meaning the next sport we will be watching is Basketball. We are also planning to hopefully have some fun activities in September/October for all athletes to participate in. There are no details yet, but hopefully will be able to announce it as soon as we can. I know this is a disappointment that you did not want to hear. But plese make sue to join us on Facebook at Special Olympics Indiana Vanderburgh County. We make lots of announcement thru Facebook and a great way for athletes to keep in touch with each other. If you have any questions, please contact me by: email – susan.adler2@yahoo.com OR cell/text - 812-455-8828 Susan Adler County Coordinator, Vanderburgh County
