Become a Coach

Special Olympics is a sports organization which relies on volunteer coaches who dedicate their time, knowledge and spirit to help our athletes exceed expectations. Coaching with Special Olympics DC is an important responsibility that offers significant rewards. In order to ensure that our athletes have a safe, challenging, and authentic sports experience at every practice and competition, Special Olympics requires coaches to be certified, and seeks to support volunteer coaches to build upon their skills.

Volunteer Head Coach and Assistant Coaches have to be available during the following times: (one weekday per week/depending on sport for 8 weeks, 9:30am-2pm. Tuesday evenings, 6pm to 9:30pm).
