School and Caregiver Spring Games Handbook 2017


Thanks to each of you for all the hard work you put into this year’s games. This year will be another great Spring Games for the athletes of Buncombe County. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

The Buncombe County Spring Games would not be possible without the sponsorship and support of Buncombe County Recreation Services.

Please keep in mind that Buncombe County Special Olympics Spring Games is a large undertaking managed by a very small group of volunteers. We do not receive designated funding for this event.  We raise funding for this event as part of general fundraising; it is the single largest expenditure of time and volunteer resources each year.

We ask for your support by working to communicate efficiently and to minimize our administrative overhead. Clear information, presented in a timely manner is important. Providing information in the formats provided will enable us to streamline our process. Please limit handwritten and faxed information as this increases transcription errors and increases our workload. Please limit in-person deliveries to our offices; staff availability is intermittent and in-person deliveries create logistical challenges.
