Athlete Leadership 


The Special Olympics Athlete Leadership enables athletes of all abilities, working with a mentor to become socially and personally more confident, have a voice, contribute and participate as leaders and ambassadors within Special Olympics Ireland and in their own community. 

Athlete Leadership is based on 4 main cornerstones providing a way for athletes to develop and showcase their talents and interests through training and experience, both on and off the sports field.
