Feb 11 – Feb 12 all-day

Special Olympics Ohio announces a new addition to its state competition schedule: beginning in 2020, a State Winter Games competition will be held on the campus of Bowling Green State University.

Special Olympic Ohio’s 2020 State Winter Games will involve six different sports and two different competition events. The indoor sports (Basketball, Competitive Cheerleading, and Swimming) will be hosted at Bowling Green State University, February 21 through 23, 2020. Outdoor Winter Games events (Alpine Skiing, Snowboarding, and exhibition Snowshoeing) will be hosted at Brandywine Ski Resort in Sagamore Hills, February 11-12, 2020.

An estimated 1,500 athletes from all parts of Ohio are expected to compete in traditional and Unified state championship events at the Bowling Green Games.

This program expands sports opportunities for athletes seeking new challenges and dramatically increases inclusion in the community.

Cancelled! Toledo TOPSoccer
Mar 15 @ 1:00 pm – 1:50 pm

Hello TOPSoccer Families

 

As we are sure you are aware, the landscape surrounding COVID-19 is rapidly changing. We have received word that the State is mandating all Ohio schools to take a mandatory 3 week “spring break”. In light of this, and communications from our governing bodies, TFA will be cancelling our final TOPSoccer-Sunday that was scheduled to take place on March 15.  We will resume again in August.  In the meantime, stay healthy!

 

Thank you and take care.
