Coaches Corner

"The key to improving athlete performance and well-being is based on the quality of sport training and experiences provided by the local Special Olympics coach.

"Coach" refers to an individual who assumes responsibility for athletes, actively trains athletes, and coaches them in competitions [the Class A Volunteer].

The Special Olympics North America Coach Education System identifies basic standards and competencies necessary and essential for being a Special Olympics coach."
