Guernsey Special Olympics is a non-profit, local organization through Special Olympics Ohio. This is provided as a service to all Guernsey County eligible individuals regardless of provider affiliation free of charge and is staffed by registered, certified and trained volunteers under the direction of Special Olympic Coordinators.

The program includes competition and training and is generously funded through No-Show Ball donations, fund-raisers, the George Decker Memorial Foundation, local levy dollars, and local grants.



Individuals wishing to participate in Special Olympics must have an Athlete Medical Form on file (download below). The athlete needs to complete pages 1-3. Take pages 4 and 5 to your physician. The physician must complete pg 4. If your physician does not clear you for participation and refers you for follow-up evaluation by another physician, the physician you are referred to must complete pg 5.

The form is good for three years.
