To: All Interested Individuals receiving SSA services from GCBDD
From: Bob Werry, Local Special Olympics Coordinator and Phil Hayes, Special Olympics Basketball Coach
Date: October 3, 2016
Re: Eagles Basketball Sign-ups Deadline is October 14th
    Please sign up on the attached form now for Guernsey Special Olympics Basketball. The deadline to sign up is Friday, October 14, 2016. No sign-ups will be accepted after that time.
Special Olympics is a volunteer organization; and as such; cannot always provide for the staffing needs of every individual. Some individuals may need a provider or family member to accompany them for the best possible experience for everyone.
Each athlete must complete or have on file a valid Application for Participation (Physical) and Release. Independent athletes and athletes from any day program or local school district are eligible, as long as the individual is eligible to receive services through the Guernsey County Board of DD.
Practices will be held at Golden Rule Gym and will be listed on the monthly calendar. There is no cost to participate. More specific information will be forthcoming after the list of interested individuals is compiled. There will be a Mandatory Parent and Caregiver Meeting held on October 24 at 6:00 PM. All participants and their parents/caregivers must attend this meeting to be able to participate in the basketball program.
A ride home will be needed after practices and games.
Medication administration services will not be available to athletes during basketball season. Families/Providers will be responsible for administering any medication that is required during any basketball activity (practice, game, tournament, etc.).
    Please return this form to Phil Hayes by Friday, October 14, 2016. No sign-ups will be accepted after that time.
