The Wolf Pack

We Are So Proud of Our Teams

It is Time for Bowling 2024! 

A message from Ken Heaton, organizer of Special Olympic Sports for Project id:

Mark Your Calendars! Bowling sign-up is happening July 16, 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the Wolf Den at 8805 E Euclid Ave. Leaders will determine if you need Special Olympics registration information at the sign-up event. If so, we’ll provide the necessary paperwork and guide athletes through the process. Additionally, you’ll receive the practice schedules and competition dates for the upcoming bowling season.

This year, the format is a bit different. There will be a sub-regional competition to qualify for regionals. A gold medal at sub-regionals will earn you a spot at regionals, and a gold medal at regionals will qualify you for state.

It’s crucial that athletes attend all early practice sessions, as leaders and volunteers will be working to get athlete averages and determine team placements. If an athlete is unable to make the sign-up event on July 16th, please contact me directly via email or phone to let me know you want to be on the bowling team.

Bowling practice starts August 2 at Valley Bowl, 8005 E Sprague Ave, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm and I kindly request that anyone using para-transit have a drop-off time no later than 2:45 pm and a pick-up time no later than 5:00 pm. If your pick-up is later than 5:30 pm, please know that volunteers and staff may not be able to wait with you for your ride, so please schedule your rides accordingly. The schedule of practices is below.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of the Wolf Pack and showcase your bowling skills. I look forward to seeing you all at the sign-ups!

Bowling is one of the fastest growing Special Olympics sports. Although there are some modifications made for athletes with various abilities, most athletes compete under the same rules and circumstances as athletes on a professional tour.

Bowling may not be an Olympic sport, but it is among the most popular sports in Special Olympics. It is a particularly beneficial sport to people with intellectual disabilities, irrespective of their age or sports abilities, since it ensures physical exercise and at the same time participation and social integration.

FUN FACTS: Bowling is Special Olympics Washington’s largest sport, with over 4,170 athletes competing around the state!
