Stepping Up Their Game

Special Olympics offers more than just sports training for our athletes. Special Olympics Athlete Leadership Programs (ALPs) allow athletes to step up their game and explore opportunities for participation in roles previously considered “non-traditional.” These programs provide training so our athletes can be participants in all administrative functions of the organization. Volunteer and Coaches Training sessions are setup throughout the year to train area volunteers to work effectively with athletes to build management and engage in leadership skills in all aspects of Special Olympics.
