Region J Bocce
This event is recreational only. There are no player vs player options.
Each agency has a designated time slot, please do not come any earlier/later than your scheduled time. Additionally, please leave immediately following you session, there will not be awards. After check-in, please head to your assigned courts and stay there until it is time for your playing time to begin. As soon as the athlete is completed, they are able to leave.
Final Divisions will be created after the competition based on final score/time and we will send out award certificates to all coaches. We will not be having an awards ceremony and we will not be providing lunches; all athletes will be able to leave after they finish their game.
Masks must be worn at all times where social distancing is not possible. Since bocce is not a physically demanding sport, we encourage them to be worn at all times during this event. Special Olympics will not be providing masks so it is up the agency and athletes to bring their own. For safety reasons Special Olympics will not have water on site so it is the agencies’ responsibility to inform athletes to bring their own water and bottle.
Bathrooms will be available for use for athletes and coaches only.
To make sure we abide by the 50 person maximum set by the IDPH, parents and spectators are unfortunately not allowed to attend and only registered athletes and coaches are allowed at the event.
Special Olympics Illinois is committed to providing the best athlete, volunteer, coach and supporter environment possible. While we are excited to resume in-person events, the health and well-being of our constituents remains our top priority. All of our in-person events follow the COVID-19 recommended IDPH and CDC guidelines.
