We strive to accommodate as many individuals as possible on our club, but due to the limitations of lane space and coaches we are limited in the number of athletes that can participate in our programs.
Our swim program has two seasons. One in the fall and one in the spring.
The ski season is very short and consist mostly of participation in the Special Olympics Ohio Winter Games at the end of January or early February.
Please understand we want to accommodate all individuals, but that our program is a competitive swim team and not a learn-to-swim program. We require you to be able to swim 25 meter in deep water. Our practices last 60-90 minutes and are held in 10’ deep water at the University of Akron - Ocasik Natetoreum.
We accept and evaluate applications prior to the start of each seasons/sessions. If you are interested in applying for our team, please complete the application form listed below and forward to Jim O'Neil.
To be a member of the Summit Special Olympic Athletic Club (SSOAC) you will need to agree to and sign a SSOAC code of conduct form, complete a Special Olympic Ohio Medical and Release Form, and agree to be an active member of the team. All new applications will have a trial period to ensure there is a good alignment between the athlete and the SSOAC
