We need coaches and unified partners for our sports programs to be successful. Join us for these fun and rewarding opportunities. In order to serve all interested SOVA Athletes in the seven sports we offer in the Fall, many volunteers are needed. Volunteering with our Athletes is a very rewarding and positive experience. Please consider volunteering in a sport in which you would like to help. Volunteer Registration form for Area 6 Fall Sports.

On Friday May 4, 2018 at L C Bird High School, located at 10301 Courthouse Road Chesterfield VA, hosted the Annual Special Olympics Virginia Area 6 Track and Field Event. Beginning at 10 AM, at the “Athletics Field”, the school marching band “kicked off” the event for approximately 200 Special Olympics Athletes. There were almost 400 track and field events and athletes arriving from all over the greater Richmond Metropolitan Area. Event award ribbons were presented throughout the day.
This was the fifth year that Dr. Hebert, Principal, at L C Bird, along with her students and staff, hosted this annual event. The school has been planned and and created decorations to enhance and add to the festive atmosphere because Special Olympics is more than “just sports”.
This event represents an opportunity for the students of L C Bird and the numerous volunteers from the community to “stand side by side” with the Special Olympics athletes and support the “Special Olympics Movement”. Special Olympics is: inclusion, unity, tolerance and acceptance. Through work in the fields of health, education, community building and sports, Special Olympics addresses inactivity, injustice, intolerance and social isolation of people with intellectual disabilities.
Thank you LC Byrd and all your and our volunteers for continuing to support the Area 6 Summer Games!
Below are some pictures from our event:
