New Athlete Application for Participation (medicals) are required for any athlete who is looking to participate in Special Olympics. If their current medical has been updated/renewed in any way, current medical is expired, or are a first time athlete, please complete and return an updated medical to your area office prior to competition season. Your 2019 Winter Sports Medicals are due on Friday, September 20th, 2019.
Please have the form signed and dated by a parent/guardian of the athlete and Physician. This from can be brought into your local SOTX area office, sent via fax or scan via email to email@example.com.
Important Note: Per the SOI General Rules, athletes competing in an area competition, which may include certain local competitions, must have a signed medical before they can begin practicing.
All areas will set medical deadlines that will align with the start of practice for each sport they offer. Medicals must be on file in with the area office prior to the start of training for all athletes planning on competing at an area competition, or at a local competition not under an Independent School District or other agency umbrella.
Any athlete who does not have an active medical prior to competition entry deadline, will be scratched from the competition. No exceptions will be made.
This will include any athlete whose medical expires prior to Area, Regional, State competition.
