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. Unified Sports bring together equal numbers of athletes with and without intellectual disabilities, of similar age and ability, to compete against other Unified Sports teams. This program expands sports opportunities for athletes seeking new challenges and dramatically increases inclusion in the community.
