Foundation of Special Olympics Coaching

When a coach begins working with Special Olympics athletes, they need the basics of teaching, training as well as coaching this population. The two-hour Foundation of Special Olympics Coaching does just that. The interactive course provides mission-based information that is athlete centered, sport focused and coach driven. The keys to successfully teaching and coaching athletes are provided and include what can be done to maximize your training sessions, prepare your athletes for competition and improve their performance.

This course is a prerequisite to taking a sports-specific coaches education course which involves two sessions: a one-hour Virtual Classroom and a two-four hour in-person Hands-on Activity Session with athletes.
