"Let Me Win, But if I Cannot Win,
Let Me Be Brave In The Attempt."


Please be advised - on this web site, we attempt to be as accurate as possible concerning the times, dates and locations for practices and activities.  When, due to circumstances beyond our control, an activity is canceled, rescheduled, or relocated at the last minute, the new information will be noted below as quickly as possible.  If you are dropping off an athlete for an activity, we strongly recommend that you confirm that activity on site before you depart.

Director's Corner

Our annual Bull Roast is the primary fundraiser for our program, and we expect our 3rd Annual Bull Roast to be bigger and better than ever!  We have tweaked the menu, based on attendee's feedback, and we will have prize wheels, raffles, and auctions again.  And our DJ will be back to get everyone up on their feet.  Check out our Bull Roast flyer for details - location, time, pricing, menu items,... This is an event that you will really enjoy.  Get the word out.  Advance payment for a table of ten will save on the admission,

Glenn Carr, our own Energizer bunny, is again coordinating two events in July.  Athletes may march as a group in the Annapolis 4th of July Parade.  And our annual Bowie Baysox game fundraiser is scheduled for Sunday, July 19th, at the Baysox stadium.  The game starts at 2 pm, and food and drinks will be provided in an air conditioned room while you watch the game.  Details and contact information are provided in the flyers in the lower right hand column on this page.  Come out, have a great time, and support our program.  Thank you, Glenn, for your tireless efforts that promote and benefit Special Olympics AA County.

For information about volunteer opportunities with our program, please contact our volunteer coordinator, Kyle Hines ( khinessoaamd@gmail.com ).  Coaches and assistant coaches must be at least 18 years old, and must undergo a background check.  Volunteers who assist at events or practices may be younger than 18, but volunteers who are under 16 must be supervised by a parent or guardian.

To make information about our programs more available, we have added contact email addresses for our head coaches to each of the pages for our sports programs.

I wish to make athletes, parents, and caregivers aware that after discussions with Special Olympics, Inc., and Special Olympics North America, Special Olympics Maryland (SOMD) will be enforcing age group regulations for teams.  The age groupings that SOMD will use are  8 - 11, 12 - 15, 16 - 21, 22 - 39, 40 and over.  Additional groups may be possible in the 22 and over group,  depending on the numbers of adult participants.  The regulatory article, Article 1 of the Sports Rules is available on Special Olympics USA's web site.  See  Sports Rules, Article 1 for details (scroll down to Section H on page 7).  Note that SOMD has decided to subdivide the upper and lower age groupings for teams.  SOMD has an explanation of and the underlying rationale for the policy available on their web site.  See the Explanation and Rationale here.

For Facebook fans, we have a group in Facebook - Special Olympics Maryland, Anne Arundel County.  Messages about upcoming events, last minute cancelations, and the start of our sports seasons will be posted here. Link to our Facebook Page here, and join our group!.

If you have any questions about our program, feel free to contact me, via phone, fax, e-mail, or regular post, and I will respond as quickly as I can.
