Athlete Registration

Eligibility

Programs are open to individuals with an intellectual disability and are designed to increase fitness levels, develop individual and/or team skills and to promote sportsmanship and fair play. No person shall, on the grounds of gender, race, religion, ability level, or financial constraint be excluded from participation. Please note, however, that some sports may require good upper body strength and coordination.

If you have any questions regarding eligibility, please contact Dianne Zamborsky at registration@sobcvancouver.org.

Medicals

For liability and safety reasons, the medicals of each athlete participating in a program (or competition) must be on-site. An athlete cannot participate in the day’s events (training or competition) if there is not a current completed medical on hand, regardless of whether they, or their guardian, give their authority to participate without one. Head Coaches should ensure that they have up-to-date medicals, especially prior to attending a competition. Medications change all the time and we are not always notified. If you are advised of any change on a medical form, please notify the Registration Coordinator.
