Starting October 1, 2017 Special Olympics will require all athletes joining Special Olympics Iowa to complete newly updated Release and Medical Forms.
These new forms will take the place of the Physical and Consent Forms that SOIA required athletes to fill out in the past. Any athlete with a current Physical and Consent Form on file will NOT need to renew with the new forms until their current physical expires.
Before athletes can begin competition in SOIA, they must submit the following forms:
- Athlete Information Form (renewed every 3 years)
- Participant Release Form
- Medical Forms
- Health History
- Physical Exam (renewed every 3 years)
- Referral Form (if required)
A current Physical and Release Form must be on file with the Special Olympics Iowa state office in order for an athlete to be eligible to practice and compete. These are the only physical and release forms we can accept.
Prior to submitting the new required forms, please review the SOIA New Release and Medical Forms slides.
If you are unsure of the date your athlete’s Physical and Release Forms will expire or if you have questions about the new Release and Medical Forms, please contact:
