2005 Special Olympics World Winter Games: Volunteer Sport Officials needed

2005 Special Olympics World Winter Games: Volunteer Sport Officials needed

Special Olympics is requesting nominations for volunteer sport officials for the 2005 Special Olympics World Winter Games in Nagano, Japan, which will take place 26 February–5 March 2005. The following seven Special Olympics sports will be staged for 2,200 athletes who will travel from around the world:

  • Alpine Skiing
  • Cross Country Skiing
  • Figure Skating
  • Floor Hockey
  • Snowboarding
  • Snowshoeing
  • Speed Skating
Since the Winter Games will take place in Japan, the majority of officials will come from that country, but a number of international officials from countries outside of Japan and Special Olympics athletes participating as qualified officials (SOOPA) and their mentors will be needed. International and/or National Sport Federation Officials’ certification, if issued by the sport, and/or Special Olympics officiating experience is required for all applicants for officials’ assignments at the 2005 World Games.

The application form must be received by the Games Organizing Committee (GOC) no later than 12 March 2004, and must have the signature of a Special Olympics Program’s National Director/Executive Director in order to be considered. The processing of application forms will begin immediately thereafter.

Please submit completed applications to:
