Volunteer as a Coach
All clubs need to have Coaches and Assistant Coaches
We take our sports seriously here at Special Olympics so anyone wishing to volunteer in a coaching role needs to have the minimum qualifications required for that sport in alignment with the relevant National Governing Body. We have a great Coaching pathway and can support you to reach the qualifications you need.
Coaches plan and run the training programmes and prepare athletes for competition
Assistant Coaches support the Coach in delivering of training sessions. If you have an interest in a particular sport and would like to get involved in coaching we can help get you started with an Introduction to Coaching Practices course.
