COACHES

Do you enjoy coaching and want to improve your knowledge? Are you involved in volunteering with a Special Olympics club and want to develop your skills?

Coaches are absolutely essential to Special Olympics Ireland. Without you, the programme simply cannot operate effectively. As a coach, you provide athletes with encouragement, guidance and technical support to help them reach their full potential.
