Registration / Enrollment

All athletes must be registered with Special Olympics Ontario before they can participate in any Special Olympics program. This only has to be done once. Go to the Special Olympics Ontario - Get Involved page and click on the appropriate button.  This must be completed before you can enroll in any program. 

Twice yearly, April and August, we share information about our spring /summer and fall/winter programs. 

We accept online enrollments vial the portal, accessible from the appropriate button on the "Already A Registered Member" section of the Special Olympics Ontario - Get Involved page . Note that priority is given to returning athletes, but we do maintain waiting lists if necessary. Successful enrollment goes not guarantee a spot in any program - you will be contacted by the GDSO Registrar or the Head Coach / Team Manager of the program to confirm your status.

***** Summer Programs Registration Update *****

"GDSO getting ready for the Summer session.  At this point we are encouraging volunteers and athletes to apply for the program(s) through the Portal system (instructions at the end of the document found at the link below) to assist us in determining number of athletes. For all programs, preference is given to returning athletes.

At this time it is an application, which does not guarantee a spot, or that the program will run.  There is a need for VOLUNTEERS for ALL programs listed.  Several programs are in jeopardy of not running as we need registered coaches and sport volunteers to ensure we are compliant with the Athlete/Volunteer ratio and Safe Sport training. If you are interested, or know of someone interested, please contact our volunteer coordinator. Please email for more information."
