Upper Arlington Special Olympics

Track & Field

Welcome to Upper Arlington Special Olympics Track and Field!

Well...... 2020 is different but there will be Track, Softball throw, and Bocce now that State of Ohio Special Olympics has provided guidelines. Special Olympics Ohio is now permitting groups of 10 athletes to get together for practice sessions. 


TRACK

Track will be Sunday mornings at Hastings Middle School Track, from 7/12/20 to 8/30/20

We are going to try two 45 minute sessions with 10 athletes each. We will have 100 meter runs and throw the softball (cleaned between throwers). Each athlete must have a signed Special Olympics COVID-19 waiver, have their temperature taken, wear a mask and follow social distancing directions.  Each athlete must have a parent of caregiver partner (to help manage the social distancing aspects of the activity). 

BOCCE

Bocce will be Tuesday and Thursday evening at Burbank Early Childhood School Backyard from 7/14/20 to 8/27/20


We are going to try a 60 minute session with 10 athletes twice a week.  We will not share the bocce balls and clean them between games.  Each athlete must have a signed Special Olympics COVID-19 waiver, have their temperature taken, wear a mask and follow social distancing directions.  Each athlete must have a parent of caregiver partner (to help manage the social distancing aspects of the activity).
