Due to on-going concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic and athlete safety, SOSC will limit athlete presentation at all fundraising events. Athletes interested in attending fundraising events as a registered participant must do so in the same manner as any other prospective participant. Fundraising events will follow all local and County COVID-19 protocols.
