Unified 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament at West De Pere High School Sunday, February 18th

What is Special Olympics? 

Special Olympics is an avenue for our student athletes at Syble Hopp School to compete against other athletes within our area, our state, and even our country. Our student athletes can participate in a variety of individual sports, team sports, and unified sports. Check out the Special Olympics Wisconsin Mission.

What sports does Syble Hopp offer? 

Communication

I communicate with families using Remind 101 (sign up by texting @hoppso to 81010), email (jklicka@syblehopp.org), and notes home to parents. I typically send out a Remind 101 text and a note about a month prior to a sport's season starting to see if you want your son or daughter to participate. If you commit to having your son or daughter participate, then you will receive an additional text and note the week of the competition outlining where the competition is, what time your athlete needs to arrive, and the travel accommodations for that competition. 

Get Involved

With our expanding numbers, I'm always looking for additional help. The three ways parents, family members, and friends can involved with our program are by becoming a volunteer (class A), a unified partner (class B), or a coach. Unified partners compete alongside my student athletes in competitive activities against other unified teams. I'm trying to move more towards having my class B volunteers being school-aged athletes instead of simply using teachers and parents. Class A volunteers are typically parents who are attending Special Olympics events anyway, so they help me out at competitions with whatever I may need. The most involved opportunity for helping occurs with coaching. I currently coach all of our sports with additional help for our sports teams. If you are interested in helping in anyway, then you can click on the appropriate link and it will walk you through the steps to become a unified partner, volunteer, or coach

West De Pere Unified Football Camp!

The West De Pere Football Team hosted a Unified Football Camp for our student athletes from Syble Hopp School. At the event, the West De Pere football players led the Syble Hopp athletes through a warm up, five different football drills, and some sled pushes. Afterwards all of the athletes enjoyed a pizza party with their new friends. We are incredibly thankful for this opportunity! It's an experience our student athletes won't ever forget!

Look at this crew!

It was heart warming to see the support and encouragement from everyone when it was time for our Kangaroos to have a sled push competition!

There's nothing quite like enjoying pizza and gatorade with new friends to cap off an amazing day!

Regional Basketball Skills Competition

Syble Hopp School couldn't be more proud of our basketball skill student athletes. These student athletes  had to endure a long wait time before it was finally time to compete. Not only did they remain respectful, but when it was show time, they all showed out! 

Thank you to all of the family and friends that came out to support our student athletes!

Here's a few action shots from Regionals!
