The First Air – LETR Hercules Pull will take place Saturday, September 6 at the DND hanger. The teams start to pull at noon. For reasons beyond our control, we will not have a team of athletes pulling but athletes are welcome to come with parents or caregivers to watch the event. We will have a small concession at the event as well. To register a team, you can contact email@example.com
Don’t forget registration this Wednesday, September 3 form 6 – 8 pm at the Multiplex. SONWT’s new tshirts will be available for sale for $20. Also, goggles will be for sale for swimmers who do not have goggles for the upcoming season. These are also $20.
For those athletes who need greater support than the standard SONWT ratios for athletes to volunteers, please make sure you talk to the Sports Program Coordinator at registration.
Information on athlete eligibility for participation in SONWT sport programs is outlined in the attached policy.4000D Athlete Eligibility for Participation
It’s here. Please come out on Wednesday, September 3 to the Multiplex for registration during the City’s Community Showcase evening. All athletes, volunteers and coaches should register for the sports this year. Sports include swimming, speed skating, rhythmic gymnastics, skating (with an emphasis on figure skating), and bowling. Youth sport skill development programs are available to those ages 3- 6 and 7 – 11. We are also hoping to offer a general fitness program this winter. There is no cost to register. You can get your Special Olympics NWT t-shirts at registration for $20 each. We’ll see everyone there.
A big thank you to the folks at Eureka for the donation of bottles and cans to Special Olympics NWT. We had a full crew out to count and sort them this weekend. Money from this set of recycling will pay for more than one pool rental day this year! Thank you.
Special Olympics golfers were happy once again to take part in the Yellowknife Golf Club’s McDonalds Mondays program. For these athletes, there is no better way to spend a Monday morning in July than out at the club, practicing skills and trying a few holes of golf. We’d like to give a big thank you to the Golf Club for so generously including us in their program and to Al at McDonalds for generously sponsoring this great program.
Active Start and FUNdamentals start this coming Saturday for ages 2 – 11. In 45 minute sessions, we have a lot of fun while building core sport participation skills. For information on this fall’s 10 week session, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
