With the continued spread of COVID-19, and the current Phase 2 restrictions with the State of Montana and Special Olympics North America, SOMT has decided to alter the winter bowling season. The 2021 Regional Bowling Championships originally scheduled for January and February of 2021 in Bigfork, Billings, Butte, and Havre will not be held. Instead, SOMT will be rolling out the following event.
The 2020-2021 Special Olympics Montana Bowling Blitz will have teams “Rockin’ and Bowlin’ into 2021.” Teams can return to practice and competition, while keeping athletes in their home communities, and in groups of 50 or less. This competitive event is open to all registered teams across Montana.
The Bowling Blitz will have athletes and unified partners practicing and competing from their home bowling alleys in singles, traditional doubles, and unified doubles. Athletes can register for up to 2 events. For athletes who remain “high risk” and are unable to return to practice, there will be a “Compete From Home” option that will include 3 different activities.
New with the 2020-2021 SOMT Bowling Blitz will be live stream events of team practice and competition sessions hosted on the SOMT Facebook page and YouTube channel. These live streams will showcase athletes from across Montana as they train and compete during the winter bowling season. Please watch the SOMT Facebook page and website for additional information on these live stream events. They will also be posted on this page. Take a peek and catch the action!
