Becoming a coach is easy!
You don’t need prior experience – we provide the necessary training and resources. All you need is a compassionate nature, a desire to help others and a lot of enthusiasm. Special Olympics Arizona (SOAZ) volunteer coaches come from all walks of life, including former Olympians, college students, young professionals and a host of family members. Currently, there is a need for coaches in just about every area of Arizona — the more coaches we have, the more athletes we can help!
Coaches commit to a weekly practice for 8+ weeks as well as the area and state competitions. Looking for a more flexible volunteer role? Check out our day-of volunteer opportunities here!
