Sports

The Pembroke and Area Special Olympics Ontario offers training in 11 sports throughout the year. The programs are designed to provide athletes with the increased skill and fitness level which result from regular physical activity which leads to competition at levels including local, regional, provincial, national, and even world games. All of our athletes benefit from the social interaction with their teammates and many find that their self-confidence is improved as a result of their achievements both in practice and in competition.

Our program schedule is shown below. For more information about any program, please contact the coach of the program, or contact the Pembroke and Area Community Coordinator

Our Sports include summer Track and Field, Bocce, Golf, Soccer, Softball

Winter/Fall Basketball, Bowling, Skating skills (hopefully) Powerlifting, Swimming and Snowshoeing. 


 Athletes of all ability levels are welcomed into the programs to receive the appropriate level of training and coaching. Please note that athletes who require one-on-one support must be accompanied by a member of their support network. 

Some important notes:

  • Our program charges an overall registration fee of 25 dollars and then each sport may have a facility fee that is paid each week, which is used to rent facilities and provide equipment where appropriate.
  • Please note that not all sports provide the equipment necessary to participate. Please confirm with the Head Coach of the program if personal equipment is required before attending the first practice. Such as shin guards for soccer.
  • Additionally, some programs may have a limit on the number of participants, and therefore may be unable to accept new registrations.
  • Athletes or caregivers should contact the coach or community coordinator of the program to verify that there is space in the program.
