Volunteer

All the coaching, sport management, administrative functions associated with being part of an international organization, and fundraising efforts to ensure maintenance of low participation costs are performed by volunteers.

A Special Olympics volunteer need only be believer in what we are endeavouring to do and be enthusiastic about achieving it. The Brockville and Area Community Council will ensure that you are provided with any training or support you may require to perform your chosen task. As funds and needs dictate training opportunities, such as NCCP courses, and First Aid, will be provided to interested volunteers.

The list below is an example of the types of activities you may wish to get involved in:

-provide training for athletes in any of our different sports

-work with athletes to improve basic motor skills and teach sport-specific skills

-prepare athletes for competitions

-commit some weekends for competitions
