Coaches play a unique role in Special Olympics, working hands-on with athletes to provide the sports skills and spirit they need to compete. A coach can be a teacher, family member, or someone simply who wants to change others’ lives and their own.

Coaches are certified by Special Olympics Washington and train athletes in a variety of sports. Each sport season is approximately eight weeks long and athletes typically train for one-two hours per week during the course of each season. We are adding new athletes to the program everyday, and as we continue to grow, we need additional coaches.
