Join The Journey

As Special Olympics programs across Canada continue to respond to the challenges of keeping athletes connected and active during the pandemic, this year’s national team program is extending the invite to all athletes across the country to “Join the Journey.”

“Join the Journey” will provide an opportunity for Special Olympics athletes and coaches from coast to coast to coast to share in the joy of the Special Olympics Team Canada (SOTC) journey, so they too can benefit from virtual training alongside the SOTC 2022 Training Squad.

This “Join the Journey” concept supports SOC’s commitment to grassroots programs by making available national team resources to all Special Olympics Canada athletes and coaches. While the Training Squad benefits from increased training and tools, fellow athletes and coaches in community programs across the country can “Join the Journey” and enjoy training alongside the Training Squad.
