The Coronavirus global pandemic warrants our close attention, vigilance and careful response.
In matters relating to COVID-19, we are following recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Colorado Department of Public Health and Special Olympics International to best ensure the health and safety of all in our community.
Important Practice Updates
October 28, 2020
Based on rising COVID-19 positivity and hospitalization rates and new state and county guidelines, including moving to “Level 3: Safer at Home” protocols, we must reduce the number of people at in-person practices from 15 to 10 statewide (coaches and athletes included). These guidelines will run from today and until further notice as we continue to abide by regulations and monitor COVID in our communities.
All other guidelines, including masks at all times during practice and social distancing should be maintained.
We know the reduced numbers are not ideal for teams who have been practicing in larger groups all season. We suggest either considering breaking practices into two groups or alternating groups for the final weeks of the season. Coaches and teams are encouraged to reach out to your Regional Manager if you have any questions or if we can assist any way.
Winter Season Updates
Please join us for a Hybrid Winter Season culminating with TWO Champions Highlight Shows – the Winter Sports Champion Highlight Show and the Champions Highlight Show – Basketball Edition! Our hybrid season allows our teams to practice as long as they complete and follow all of our COVID-19 protocols and guidelines; please visit the link below for additional information.
