2021 SONM Winter Virtual Games
January 18 – March 15
Due to the current status of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will once again be unable to provide in-person training and competition resulting in the continuation of our virtual programming in the 2021 SONM Virtual Winter Games. Athletes will be eligible to choose to compete in four events from a list of fifteen. Some of the events are poly hockey specific while others are geared toward general fitness.
The events are divided into two main categories: Repetition Events and Timed Events. There is run/walk/roll event that required a third category but it only has one event and it does not require a qualifying score and is a cumulative events where athlete track miles ran/walked/rolled for the eight week season.
Points of Emphasis
- All entries MUST have a qualifying score to be eligible to advance to the finals.
- Athletes can choose four events to compete in.
- All participants and those who support them (coaches, parents, Unified Partners, caregiver…) must review and familiarize themselves with the event descriptions before submitting qualifying entries.
- The standard SO Winter medal will be used for this event.
