Athlete Input Council

Become Involved

An Athlete Input Council is a way for athletes to express their ideas, concerns and recommendations at the local level. Input councils meet on a regular basis and recommend new ideas to their local county management team and provide feedback on events and competitions. The Athlete Input Council is also another way for athletes to share their stories about how Special Olympics have impacted their lives with other athletes. An input council should meet at least 4 times a year or once every 3 months.

What are the benefits of an Athlete Input Council?

Athlete Input Councils give athletes more of a leadership role within Special Olympics Arizona and also within their communities. In addition, the Athlete Input Council gives the athletes a sense of pride that they are making a difference in an organization that is dedicated to serving them. The Athlete Input Council reassures the athletes that they are the main reason why Special Olympics exists.

How do I become an Athlete Input Council Member?

There is a process that an athlete must go through in order to be part of the Athlete Input Council. First, there is an application that they must fill out, and send back to the Athlete Input Council Coordinator. Once the Athlete Input Council Coordinator receives an application, that person will then go through a phone interview to see if that candidate’s skill is appropriate for the Athlete Input Council. To get started on the process, contact Hannah Stewart.
