"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.

SAVE THE DATE!  Our Second Annual Bull Roast is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 20th, 2014, from 7 to 11 at La Fountaine Bleue.  This was a very enjoyable event last year, and we are expecting this year to be even better.  This is our primary fundraiser, and we really appreciate (and need) your support.  Tickets are on sale now, $45 per person, or will be available at the door for $50 per person.  You can save a little money now by booking a table of ten for $400, but you must book your table by September 6th to take advantage of this offer.  So spread the word to family and friends, and we will see you there!  For more details, please see our Bull Roast Flyer.  You will need the Adobe Reader to view this document.  Feel free to print copies and share them with everyone.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the Knights of Columbus Annapolis Council 1384, and Pasadena Council 10966 for making our program the beneficiary of their Tootsie Roll Campaigns this year.  We are truly grateful for their support, and appreciate their willingness to assist us with future endeavors.

On behalf of Special Olympics AA County, I would also like to express our gratitude to Victoria's Fancy Foods for making our program the beneficiary of their 5th Annual Chocolate Olympics.  This is a very popular annual event at their store, with customers wishing to sample (and judge) the competition paying a fee that Victoria's is donating to our program.  It was very difficult to choose one dish - all seven of the competitors outdid themselves this year!  Thank you, Victoria's Fancy Foods!

Thanks also to the Capital Gazette for sharing this photo of the check presentation.

SOMD has decided that Tennis will return to being a Fall season sport, effective immediately.  There will not be a Tennis competition at Summer Games this year, and we will not hold practices this spring.

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.  See our Facebook Page here.

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.
