Athlete Leadership

Through participation in Special Olympics sports, athletes gain confidence, self-esteem and personal skills. With this new confidence, some athletes wish to pursue other opportunities within the Special Olympics programme either in addition to their sport or as a follow on from past participation.

Athlete Leadership encourages athletes to develop skills that will empower them to be advocates for all athletes and act as a Leader for Special Olympics. Below we have prepared resources that you can use in your club to roll out different Athlete Leadership workshops.
