Participation Forms

Before athletes can begin training and competing, they must submit the SOIA Release and Medical Forms, which includes:

  • Athlete Information Form
  • Participant Release Form
  • Athlete Medical Forms
    • Health History
    • Physical Exam

The Physical and Release Form must be renewed every three years, unless otherwise specified by your physician. A current SOIA Physical and Release Form must be on file with the Special Olympics Iowa state office in order for an athlete to be eligible to train or compete. To verify the date of expiration on your athlete’s Physical and Release Form, please contact the state office at 515-986-5520.
