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? The one who helped shape both your performance and your character? 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.

Athletes Learn the Game

As most of you know the NCAA Final 4 is in New Orleans this year.  Four of the best teams in college hoops competed on Saturday, with the Kentucky Wildcats and the Kansas Jayhawks prevailing as the teams to play in the championship tonight!  Before the the championship tonight in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, we wanted to share a couple of pictures from the clinic some of our athletes attended yesterday sponsored by the NCAA.  Our athletes were given the chance to learn from some of the best college coaches across the country including University of New Orleans Head Coach Mark Slessigner.  Other universities represented were George Washington and St. Paul’s to name a few…

Our athletes were put through drills such as passing, catching, shooting, and dribbling to better understand the game.  After the drills, our athletes competed against the coaches in a full-court game!

Many thanks to all of the coaches, Special Olympics North America staff, The New Orleans Convention Center, and the NCAA for hosting Special Olympics Louisiana!
