Special Olympics Virginia (SOVA) will focus our fall activities on the Fitness Combine. Where possible, smaller local and/or regional Fitness Combine events could occur in late fall, but we will be in contact with more details on those opportunities. For additional information regarding the Fitness Combine, please visit our website at
The 2020 Fall Fitness Combine was designed with flexibility in mind. The goal of the program is to provide SOVA athletes and partners with an eight-week training program that will increase strength, flexibility, and overall physical performance that can be done at home, or at a team practice. Athletes will strive to demonstrate increased physical performance week over week with improved measurables for a variety of competitions.
The health and safety of all athletes, volunteers and family members are paramount in our approach to returning to activity. We remain committed to providing resources and support to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, as well as maintaining the health and safety of our Special Olympics community.
Training season for the Fall Fitness Combine gets officially underway.

Many of our Athletes have already been working out 4-5 days per week by tapping into our virtual fitness offerings on Facebook. In this challenging landscape we remain committed to providing as many virtual fitness and educational opportunities as possible. We challenge every athlete and coach to become engaged every day in our journey to good health and well-being.
Based on information from experts, we have decided large-scale events that require overnight accommodations, more extensive travel arrangements and mass gatherings (such as meal operations) are
not possible for 2020. As a result, Fall Championships will not occur in Virginia Beach this November.
