ASSISTANT COACH REQUIREMENTS: Must be a Class A volunteer with Special Olympics (requires a background check) and be able to teach and work with athletes with intellectual disabilities. You do not have to be an expert golfer to be a coach. If you are familiar with golf in general you will be able to help out our skills players. Skills events for our athletes include: Driving, Chipping and Putting.
FINAL NOTE: We hope to have enough volunteers so that you will not have to go every week if you choose and help our athletes get ready for competition. We need your help to keep this program going. So if you can spare an hour and a half a week and have played the game of golf sometime in your life you are just what we are looking for. If you are interested please contact the Special Olympics office by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 239-775-1991. Thank you for your time and consideration.
