Happy 2019!  Special Olympics Wake CountySpring sport season is right around the corner, and we are in need of new coaches for several of our teams.  Volunteers have the option of attending practices to assist a head coach (best for those who cannot commit to attending every practice) OR have the option of being a head coach (best for those with interest in leading, and can commit to attending all practices/competitions).      


As you can see below, we offer several sports, but are in desperate need of help with our Aquatics, Bowling, and Volleyball teams.  No experience is necessary, as we will provide training for anyone interested.  If you are more interested in one of the other sports listed, we are still interested in hearing from you.
