| Become a Coach|
Was there a mentor, teacher or coach who made a difference in your life? The one who gave you the courage and determination to strive to be your best? You can be that important person in someone else’s life.
Coaches teach the skills and spirit that define a true athlete. Coaches are role models and character-builders.
Special Olympics coaches go even further — they help athletes find their own strengths and abilities. They also show them how to build upon those strengths and improve every day.
As a Special Olympics coach, you bring enthusiasm, commitment and a positive attitude to each practice, event and competition. You will enrich the lives of our athletes in many life-changing ways. The skills and confidence an athlete learns through sports have a long and lasting effect. They can help an athlete succeed in school or even find a job.
Coaches also get a lot in return. They get to know athletes who inspire — athletes who are brave and determined, despite the odds against them. Coaches become more than teachers, mentors and role models — they are seen as leaders in the community.
