The Special Olympics Alberta Athlete Leadership Council (ALC) was created to be the voice of the athletes. It is made up of athletes from all regions of the province who are elected by their peers to represent them and bring forward their ideas, suggestions, questions and concerns. This council is athlete run and staff supported. They meet regularly to get updates from around the province and to discuss Special Olympics and athlete topics and to work on projects. The ALC is guided by the athletes rights and responsibilities.
Special Olympics Alberta believes it is important for athletes to have a positive outlook, be dependable, demonstrate good sportsmanship and behaviour in and out of the competition. The main goals for this council is that athletes will feel empowered and are proud to be a part Special Olympics Alberta. You can contact with your local representative if you have ideas, suggestions, questions and concerns.
