2017-18 Regional Qualifiers

We’re pumped for the 2017-18 season of winter-sport Regional Qualifiers, where SOBC athletes throughout the province will experience the excitement of competing to qualify for the 2019 Special Olympics BC Winter Games.

In the 2019 Provincial Games, athletes will compete for the opportunity to advance to the 2020 Special Olympics Canada Winter Games in Thunder Bay, Ontario, which will be the qualifier for the 2021 Special Olympics World Winter Games.

For SOBC athletes, it all starts right here with the Regional Qualifiers. This season it will be exciting to see 5-pin bowling make its debut in the winter sport competition cycle. Stay tuned for details to come on all the qualifiers for 5-pin bowling, alpine skiing, cross country skiing, curling, figure skating, floor hockey, snowshoeing, and speed skating!

Competitions will be added here and on the SOBC calendar once they are confirmed and sanctioned. Check back often!
