Athletes and Volunteers Banner


Do you want to support future champions in your community?

Try volunteering in a club near you.

Autumn marks the start of the new sports year for Special Olympics athletes in our network of 313 clubs across the island of Ireland.

Volunteering is fun and rewarding. Your contribution will help change the lives of our athletes and it can change your life too!

Not sure if you have the skills? 

The volunteer roles we offer are varied, some requiring little or no skills. We also offer a straight forward training pathway should you wish to learn new skills. 

Not sure if you have the time?
Whilst your club will require you to be there on certain nights, we understand that everyone has a life. You will be part of the clubs team who always allow flexibility. Even 1 hour a week is a very worthy and appreciated contribution.
Take a look at some of the roles we have on offer.
