Team sport schedules will be posted about 15 days before the State competition. Due to safety reasons and to protect our athletes, we will not be posting individual sport schedules online. However, we will post a schedule of which events are on which day on each individual sport’s landing page. For specific times at which athletes compete in individual sports, Heads of Delegation and Head Coaches will have the schedule! Team sport schedules will be posted on the landing page of the sport on the Summer Games website.

An athlete can compete in one sport per weekend. For example, an athlete can compete in both basketball and swimming, because they are on different weekends. However, an athlete would not be able to compete in basketball and track & field, because they are on the same weekend. Regarding sport specific restrictions on events, a basketball athlete may compete on one team roster OR in individual skills. An athlete may NOT participate on both a team roster AND in individual skills. For swimming, track & field and gymnastics, please see that sport’s specific handbook for any event conflicts.

Yes! Meals will only be available for registered individuals (athletes, Unified partners, coaches)—no additional meal tickets will be available for purchase.

Both locations have multiple restaurants in proximity. We are in the process of coordinating concessions and vendors at each location as well, and will update our website as we receive information!

Opening Ceremonies will take place at 12 PM on Saturday, June 22. It will be held in the main basketball gym at Stillwater High School. Teams and volunteers are invited to join us for fun, games and a celebration of the inclusion revolution!

Our Healthy Athletes program offers free health screenings and education to Special Olympics athletes at events throughout the year, including Summer Games. This year, Health Promotion screenings will be at Century Middle School in Lakeville on June 15-16, and FUNFitness, Healthy Hearing, Opening Eyes and Special Smiles screenings will be at Stillwater High School on June 21-23. Athletes will receive incentives for participating in the screenings.
