Coaches

“A good coach improves your game. A great coach improves your life.” - Michael Josephson
 
Special Olympics Oregon would not be possible without the amazing work of our volunteer coaches! We rely on our coaches to deliver quality training, guidance, and supervision to our athletes both at our regional and state competitions, but also during each team's eight weeks of training leading up to competition. The amazing bond between a coach and their athletes is evidenced nowhere more than within Special Olympics Oregon, coaching is a great way to give back to your community and make an impact on the lives of our athletes.
 
Special Olympics Oregon is always looking to add new coaches to our teams throughout the state. Prior coaching experience is not a requirement. If you love sports and love to interact with people, we provide training to help you qualify as a coach.
 
All coaches must submit an application to become a coach and complete three online mandatory training sessions. For more information, reach out to your Local Program Coordinator and they will help you get started.
