Youth Programs

Become an Athlete

Special Olympics Nova Scotia focuses their athlete recruitment around our annual Registration Day. This day is hosted on the last Wednesday of September each year. Our sports are hosted in what we call “Regions” across the province (15 in total). In each community you will find a registration day event designed to answer any questions you may have regarding getting involved.

Locations and times can be found on our website (beginning in late August) as well as on CTV beginning the first week of September.

However, Special Olympics welcomes athletes year-round.

If you happen to miss our registration day event in your community, you can simply CONTACT US and we will work to assist you and your potential athlete on the steps to get active.

Thanks to new funding from our Federal Government, we are making strides at introducing two new programs designed at enrolling more youth in our programs. For children aged 4-6 we have a new program called Active Start. For children aged 7-12 we have FUNdamentals, and for those aged 12+, we have our regular programs.
