Several Kinds of Forms
Most Special Olympics activities involve filling out a form of some kind.
Forms provide Special Olympics with information needed to keep track of who's involved with different activities. Forms identify special needs that people have. Forms also take care of some basic legal requirements.
Special Olympics Programs around the world use forms that appropriate for their location, so be sure to get in touch with your local Program to get the forms you need.

Athletes, Volunteers, Unified Partners
Special Olympics athletes fill out forms that give details of the athlete's medical history and current health. The medical forms need to be renewed every few years. Here is a guide to athlete registration forms for Programs.
Volunteers who work closely with our athletes on an ongoing basis, such as coaches and officials, fill out one kind of form. Those volunteers are considered Class A volunteers. Those who help out on occasion at events fill out another kind of form.
People who don't have intellectual disabilities and who want to be on a Unified Sports team will fill out a Unified Sports partner form.
All these forms are available from your local program. Go to this page to find the Special Olympics office nearest you.
