Return to Play Information

Special Olympics Michigan previously announced that all in-person activities were postponed through Friday, July 31. That postponement is being extended until local/area programs complete the necessary steps outlined in SOMI's Return to Practice Guidelines. The return to play process will be on a per-Area basis, pending approval by the SOMI state office.
