Registration open until 12/23/2020
UT Challenger Sports is a co-ed recreation program that enables children and adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities to enjoy the benefits of team sports participation in an adapted environment structured to fit their abilities.
Due to the ongoing pandemic spread of Covid-19 this year 2020 floor hockey will be significantly different from prior years.
There will not be any weekly league play and only one skills competition date expected to be in January/February TBA at the
SONJ Sports Complex, Lawrenceville.
Anticipated Event Offerings:
Individual Skills Challenges,
Team Skills Challenges (athletes' scores will be combined to form their total “team” score.)
We are inching closer to our Special Olympics Floor Hockey Skills season. Great news is that it looks like we have an indoor facility to use. Fingers crossed that this works out for us. We hope to be either using an Ocean City School facility or Upper Township facility on Sunday mornings at 10am starting Sunday January 10th. Of course its all subject to change but I am truly optimistic that we will get this hockey skills season in and have fun.
Indoor groups are allowed in groups of 10 including players, coaches, and parents. If we have multiple groups they must be 20' apart. Everyone must maintain 6' social distancing. Due to these restrictions it is possible that parents will not be allowed inside during practice. We will have limited coaches and volunteers because of these restrictions.
Players must be able to practice personal hygiene independently.
No helmets or pads are required. Yes face mask will be required.
Athletes must be ages 8 and up. All registrations are on-line. Sorry no walk up registrations for Special Olympics Floor Hockey.

Special Olympics does not allow players to be teamed up with buddies (or shadows) as we do in our soccer and baseball programs. Teams and players will be lead by coach and assistant coach.
