    Mid-Winter Tournament

Special Olympics Iowa is currently updating registration forms for District, Conference, and State Competitions.  We will no longer be sending these forms out in the form of a Coaches Handbook, but will be posting registration packets by competition (i.e. Winter Games, Mid-Winter Tournament, etc.) on this page as well as on the respective competition pages of the website.  Registration packets will contain all of the information local programs need to know to participate in sports offered at that competition including the registration deadlines and all registration forms.  Registration packets will be posted as soon as they are completed.  Please check the competition page of the website for the dates and registration deadlines for upcoming competitions and check back for completed registration packets.

Mid-Winter Tournament registration packets, including registrations/locations for conference basketball tournaments will be available on this page and on the Participation Forms page by November 1st.
