Organization Policy

It has come to my attention that athletes are moving out of Delaware County Special Olympics into other Special Olympics groups with the intention of returning at will or participating in a sport in with each group. This is the state approved policy:

  1. If Delaware County Special Olympics does not offer the sport you're interested in you may go to another Special Olympics group and participate with them. You may return to SODC for other sports.

  2. If Delaware County Special Olympics offers the sport that you have chosen to participate in and you choose to go to a different Special Olympics group, you are moving to the other group. The athlete will not be eligible to participate with any SODC program for a full year.

  3. Athletes may not participate in two sports in two different SO organizations at the same time.

I will be happy to answer all of your questions.
