Coaching Roles

Special Olympics PEI believes that every athlete deserves a qualified coach
Volunteer with Athlete, Bowling

As a Special Olympics coach, you bring enthusiasm, commitment and a positive attitude to each practice, event and competition, enriching the lives of the athletes you meet. In return, you develop relationships with athletes who inspire you with their dedication, perseverance and courage. You learn new skills, meet new people and gain unique experiences, enriching your own life in turn.

Regular seminars, workshops and training sessions are held to ensure that high coaching standards are maintained across the country. Learn more by reviewing our Resources for Volunteers and Coaches page.



Special Olympics PEI has two coaching streams:


Coaches work with athletes on a community level. The focus here is on a love of sport, participation, and basic skills, all in a fun environment.


Coaches work with athletes to prepare for sport specific competitions at a variety of levels.
