SOBC - Chilliwack

Special Olympics BC – Chilliwack has 65 athletes that participate in 10 locally offered sport programs. Programs are run by volunteers and volunteer coaches from September to June. Skill improvement, cardio, fitness, and strength development are key elements to each weekly training session. See the Downloads section for current program schedule. To register as an athlete, please contact Anita. 

SOBC – Chilliwack is proud to have two athletes that have attained gold medals at the last two Special Olympics World Games and have had many reach the podium at regional, provincial and national levels of competition. Pictured at right is Joanne Bunnin, the Chilliwack powerlifter who won three gold medals at the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games in Los Angeles, and Chilliwack is also home to swimmer Ryan Kuester, who medalled at the 2011 Special Olympics World Summer Games in Greece. Pictured below is our soccer team that competed with pride in the 2013 Special Olympics BC Summer Games in Langley.

We are looking for volunteers who would like to be a part of our Executive Committee to ensure that our programs continue to grow and give local athletes an opportunity to participate in sport. Please contact Judy if you would like to help.
