Renew Your Special Olympics Athlete Application

We’re excited for you (or someone in your care) to continue your Special Olympics athlete experience! You should renew your Athlete Application if your Athlete Application will expire in the next four months; or has expired within the last 12 months and you’ve not had any changes in your health history since the last physical exam. If you have had changes or your application expired more than 12 months ago, please Restart Your Application Process.


Step 1

Complete the Athlete Application (only sections A-F) via DocuSign. If you need assistance, email us at If you are not able to use DocuSign, request a PDF version here.

Note: If using DocuSign, once you've completed sections A-F and clicked "Finish" in DocuSign, no further action is required. Please keep a copy of the DocuSign application for your records (you will have the option to download and will also receive a copy via email). If not using DocuSign, please send the completed application to us via one of the methods listed at the top of Page 1 of the application.


Step 2

Your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted for questions or missing information. Once approved, you will receive an approval email with next steps. Please DO NOT attend practice until your application has been approved, and you have been notified by SONC and you have registered (see Step 6).


Step 3 

Register for available sports using our Athlete Sports Registration Process.


Step 4 (optional)

Sign up to receive information about our Virtual Health & Wellness @ Home program and join our Zoom sessions.
