Coaches are vital to the success of Special Olympics Oregon. We are implementing a phased approach to returning to activities.

Currently, local programs will have the option to select from a menu of sports to host limited sized sports training in outdoor settings with specific safety protocols in place.

For more details:

Class A Application

All volunteers who have close contact with athletes or who handle the financial assets of Special Olympics Oregon must complete a Class A volunteer application. This includes coaches, chaperones, Unified Partners and Local Program Management members.  Volunteers need to complete the Class A Volunteer process which includes an online application, background check and online trainings.

We have a few local programs providing limited in-person training this fall season.
