    About Us

    Special Olympics BC – Cowichan Valley came into being in 1994. This Local has worked hard to grow and develop programs with the intention of being able to meet the interests of as many individuals with intellectual disabilities as possible.

    The programs run by SOBC Locals in up to 18 sports and youth programs give athletes the chance to gain sport skills and improve their health while enjoying training that could take them to competitions at local, regional, national, and international levels. But the benefits from Special Olympics BC programs go well beyond the basics: Our athletes experience joy and acceptance, cultivate friendships and self-confidence, and feel empowered to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals.

    In a usual year the Local offers: athletics, basketball, bocce, 5-pin and 10-pin bowling, rhythmic gymnastics, swimming, Club Fit, figure skating, floor hockey, soccer, softball, and youth programs.

    Special Olympics BC – Cowichan Valley is always welcoming athletes and volunteers to get involved in our joyful community!
