COVID rules/updates

For obviouse reasons, we are going to have VERY strict rules regarding participation from athletes, coaches, and families during the 2020 State Outdoor Games. Read latest information on our Return to Play guidelines.

Sports Zone

Due to COVID restrictions, we won’t be able to have day-of event volunteers help with the games this year so we can allow for more athletes to be in attendance. We still have some ways you can show support for our athletes and be part of the magic of State Games!

  • Congratulations notes: These notes will be included in a bag with their award after they compete. These can be simple note cards decorated or written with a simple message of congratulations or they can be drawings/paintings.
  • Good luck signs: These will be posted around our competition venues the day of the competition. Please keep them to poster board size. A 8.5x11 sheet is perfect size for our golf carts.
  • Car games/books: These will be provided to our athletes for their trip back home from the competition.


All of the above items should be dropped off at or mailed to the Training for Life Campus (305 Special Olympics Dr., Jefferson City, MO, 65101) Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Sign up!


Healthy Athletes

As always, we will have a SAFE way for our athletes to participate in free health screenings through the Healthy Athletes program. The screenings will be offered from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Training for Life Campus (305 Special Olympics Dr.). We will offer screenings in the following disciplines: Special Smiles, Health Promotion, Fit Feet, and FUNfitness. 

We encourage EVERYONE to come by and take advantage of these free screenings! We will be following all of the proper safety guidelines including mandatory masks. We will provide masks for those who do not have one.

For more information on Healthy Athletes, email Griffin@somo.org.

Sports Zone

Athletes, coaches, family, & friends be sure to check out our new and exciting Sports Zone before, in-between, and after competitions. The Sports Zone will be located at the Training for Life Campus from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

The Sports Zone will be a socially-distanced and safe activity for athletes to participate in while they aren't competing. We will have fitness, hydration, and nutrition information stations. We will be located in the gymnasium and host sessions for groups of 10 or fewer every 20 minutes. The first 30 attendees to come through will receive a Sports Zone on-the-go bag!

For those athletes who are competing off-site and unable to come to the Training for Life Campus, you will receive Sports Zone items and information at your competition venues.
