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.
Today is International Volunteer Day. To all of of our dedicated volunteers across the state of Louisiana and the entire Special Olympics Movement, we say THANK YOU! We hope that you enjoy your day and look forward to many, many more years of your volunteer support.
Our dedicated team left at 2am this morning to make it to Oklahoma on time
Special Olympics Louisiana has 49 representatives made up of Area Team Leaders, athletes, coaches, family members, unified partners, volunteers and staff in Oklahoma for the 2013 Special Olympics South Central Regional Conference. Our representatives are joining others from Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma to learn about Special Olympics programs, news, events, etc. Several key topics will be discussed throughout the weekend and of course there will be lots of fun as well!
