Regional Competitions

Special Olympics Illinois (SOILL) is in all 102 counties, serving athletes in every corner of the state. It is organized into 11 geographic Regions, each with its own team to implement SOILL programming at the local level.

Athletes compete at their Region Qualifier and those earning a gold medal may advance to the next level of competition which in most cases is the State Championships.

There are many ways to be involved in a regional qualifier aside from competing. Each event provides opportunities to volunteer, sponsor the event, provide in-kind donations (sorry, trophies cannot be accepted) or simply attending as a Fan in the Stands*. Join us at an upcoming event in your neighborhood!

Spring Games

Special Olympics Illinois is so excited to again return to play this spring. Many of our Regions will be hosting Spring Games events through the months of April, May, and June. Participating teams and agencies will be contacted directly by the Regions. Due to our COVID-19 policies and restrictions, spectators for these events will likely be prohibited. We advise that you contact your Region if you are unsure of whether or not you are allowed to attend. Best of luck to all who are competing!

Special Olympics Illinois continues to take the threat of COVID-19 very seriously. Our number one priority is keeping our athletes, volunteers, families and constituents safe.
