Special Olympics NL has 16 community clubs throughout our province. Currently Mount Pearl and CBS Brightstars are piloting Special Olympics Canada's Self-Registration system. All other community clubs will need to be contacted directly to receive registration forms and waivers.
Special Olympics Canada has developed a self-registration online portal that allows members to review and edit member information such as addresses, dietary and medical information as well as sign up for programs. Special Olympics NL currently does NOT accept payment through the online portal system.
As the Portal is already connected to our database there may be some hiccups when registering for the first time! Please reach out to our office - 709-738-1923 or email Jennifer for assistance if needed.
This page will be updated in the coming days as we get settled into our pilot project!
IMPORTANT INFO before you begin:
1. Legal Guardian; the legal guardian of the member should be signing up for the portal. You can do this through a variety of roles:
Choose the role that best describes the person logging into the portal. Volunteers who are ALSO the LEGAL GUARDIAN of a member can choose the "parent/guardian" option to register both themselves and their athlete.
2. Each portal user (registrant) must have their OWN EMAIL address which acts as their username
3. Information you have previously provided to SONL has to match exactly what you enter in order to be found in the system. If you use a different name, email or birthday the system will create a "NEW MEMBER". This is not a problem, but the steps will look slightly different than outlined in a "RETURNING MEMBER" video/document so just follow along with the "NEW MEMBER" video/document instead!

These are not yet complete but will be in the next couple of days! But this gives a great idea of what you expect:
