Special Olympics Michigan (SOMI) is continuing its gradual return to practice/play plan. 

The return to play process remains on a per-Area basis, pending approval of the SOMI state office. Step 1 of the plan is based on education, where coaches and volunteers will receive training focused on a return to practice/play.  Once an area/program has completed Step 1, it will request approval from the SOMI state office to move into Step 2, which allows for a phased-in return to sport activities as outlined in the return to practice/play plan. Until the area/program has completed Step 1 and received approval from the Special Olympics Michigan state office to move Step 2, all in-person sport activities will remain postponed for that area/program.
