Coaches and Administrators

Our athletes realize success and prepare themselves to be employable through life experiences such as competing in Special Olympics. We recognize our volunteers – coaches, administrators and educators – as the most influential persons in this journey. Our resources and services through this website have been developed for you to use as vital tools in helping us all be successful in ensuring a best-in-class experience for our athletes and their families.
