COVID Procedures

All participants should self-screen prior to arriving at this event and should remain home if feeling unwell or displaying coronavirus symptoms.

Vaccination is not required to attend in person events.

SOILL will have hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes/spray and other cleaning/sanitizing products on-site.

Please check with your Region staff on the status of spectators attending competitions.  The decision on allowing spectators is based on the facility being used for the competition, the rules they have and the amount of people above the number of registered athletes and coaches they can safely accommodate. It is very important you relay to all parents and guardians if spectators will be allowed at this competition.

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.

What Is Gymnastics?

Gymnastics combines strength, flexibility and artistry. Competition is offered in men’s and women’s events in artistic gymnastics utilizing beams, bars, rings, vault and floor exercise equipment.

As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped into competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender when appropriate. In gymnastics, athletes also compete in specific levels.

Athletes in Illinois who participate in gymnastics compete locally at a Region Qualifying event. Gold medal winners are eligible to advance to state championships at the Summer Games held in Normal in June.
